The Door Top Alarm connects via mains power and is compatible with most staff attack systems. It can alert staff via audible alarm, visible light, staff indicator panel and via the pager or main computer.
If the top of the alarm is pressed nothing will happen until the programmed delay setting in the electronic box is activated. It has a three tiered LED system on the door top alarm which is mirrored on the electronic bod, and optionally on nurse stations. LED lighting shows it working without setting the alarm off, helping with risk assessment period checks. LED is not visible to patients. An inspection magnet is used to aid installation and carry our risk assessments.
The electronic box is housed in ceilings/lofts and connects to the mains power and staff attack system. Power transfer to the door goes via Intastop’s Electrical Transfer Hinge which ensures all cabling and electronics are concealed.
A commissioning and planned preventative maintenance program is offered as an additional service. Please contact our sales department for full details of what is included.
