Unique ligature detection
Door Top Ligature Monitor Alarm for Behavioral Health
Kingsway Group’s NYS OMH Guide approved Door Top Monitor detects ligatures at the door’s top edge to alert staff in the event of a ligature attempt. The integrated ligature monitor triggers an alarm when a weight of 15lbs is applied to the door’s top edge and works whether the door is open or closed.
An adjustable delay of up to seven seconds can be set to prevent tamper or false alarms when required, making sure clinical teams are correctly alerted to ligature incidents and reducing false or nuisance alarms.
The Kingsway Door Top Monitor alarm is fully integrated with the door itself, meaning the unit has no visible wiring and offers a streamlined, discreet appearance. The wiring travels within the door core and exits through the electrically modified hinge, providing a reliable power source to the life-critical system.
Anti-Barricade Door solution for Behavioral Health
The DTM Alarmed Door System benefits from the anti-barricade capabilities of our SWING Door System, providing staff with fast and controlled access to patient rooms in emergency situations. Its simple operation allows staff to open the door outwards within 2 seconds to overcome barricading incidents with no need to retract the lock bolt.
Manufactured to our own exacting standards, the DTM Alarmed Door System offers a versatile, safe, and durable anti-barricade solution with all the robustness of our proven-to-perform tri-laminate core doors while retaining ligature resistant design.
Ligature Monitoring Software: KOSMOS by Kingsway Group
Following extensive research with our behavioral health partners, our DTM Alarmed Door System integrates seamlessly with our KOSMOS Smart Monitoring System. The KOSMOS system helps clinical teams monitor and respond to ligature incidents to help prevent loss of life in challenging environments.
KOSMOS also provides invaluable data for future review by recording an audit trail of patient activity and staff observations. This data can help management teams review patient care quality and highlight key trends on wards, such as patients leaving their rooms at specific times during the night or remaining in their room more than usual.
Alerting staff to life-threatening incidents, the DTM Alarmed Door System integrates with all major legacy staff attack and nurse call systems, including Nurse Call and Duress Alarm system.Find out more
