Marks USA offers a complete line of Ligature Resistant Hardware, Hospital Push/Pulls, Mortise and Cylindrical locksets. Their Grade 1 Institutional Life Safety locksets are designed to address managed liability, accident prevention, life safety and security in behavioral health care institutions.
The shape and construction of the SS55 and SS19 Series Locksets are designed to restrict the attachment of lines, laces, etc., to doorknobs. In addition, with the knobs recessed into the rosettes, the chance of capturing a line between the knob and rosette is substantially eliminated. The SS55 and SS19 Locksets are currently in use at Coney Island, Bellevue and Jacobi Hospitals in New York, the Denver V.A. Hospital in Colorado and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in California, to name a few.
Marks USA was established in 1977 as a mortise lock manufacturing company that would meet the needs of an expanding market. Since then, the company has grown and expanded its’ product line to include residential, institutional and commercial locksets to meet and exceed the most stringent UL and ANSI specifications.
