Solution features a range of hardware to meet specific needs

New Braunfels, Tx-- May 30, 2013 – With dependable life safety and panic hardware, Detex Corporation has designed hardware to help ensure that healthcare facilities can control access in areas where unauthorized entry and exit are critical factors for patient protection. Nurseries, operating suites, pharmacies, dementia-care facilities – all vulnerable areas can be secured with a Restricted Access System from Detex.

Certain healthcare applications require a combination of components, and the Restricted Access System features a range of hardware to meet those specific needs. In addition, the system is scalable for more complex application requirements. Healthcare facility managers can select the exact combination of components that suit their particular applications and know that they will integrate easily with each other and function well as a restricted access system.

System components include: Advantex Panic Hardware with a 15-second delayed egress alarm to alert staff of unauthorized entry/exit; access control with immediate entry via keypad or card reader; single person entry (anti-tailgate) that allows only one authorized entry at a time; and door-propped alarms that signal if a door is standing open. All components are field-proven to work together. Only Detex offers delayed egress with latch retraction in one device, eliminating magnetic locks.

“Healthcare facility access control is a serious issue,” said Ken Kuehler, National Accounts Manager at Detex. “Our customers need quality hardware that’s proven to integrate smoothly and be completely dependable, and that’s why they rely on Detex systems.”
