Prioritizing life safety & security.
Hardware Solutions For Today’s Behavioral Healthcare Environment
As innovators in locking solutions, we understand that the one thing that’s more
important than the doors we secure is what’s behind them. In the case of behavioral
healthcare, not only must we protect from the outside, but from the inside as well.
That’s why we offer a range of hardware and devices specifically made to do just that.
Securitech’s Behavioral Healthcare Line was created in 2007 through a joint effort between Securitech, industry professionals, and the New York State Office of Mental Health. The industry was in desperate need of an ADA-compliant solution that was also ligature resistant. Securitech’s Ligature Resistant door hardware was reviewed by the VA National Center for Patient Safety Department and was quickly included in the VA’s Mental Health Environment of Care Checklist. Securitech’s Ligature Resistant Hardware has also been included in the National Association of Psychiatric Health System’s Design Guide for the Built Environment of Behavioral Health Facilities.
Thousands of Securitech door alarm and locking devices have been installed in VA Medical Centers, state psychiatric hospitals, mental health and rehabilitation facilities, detention facilities, and private facilities across the country.
The best solutions always come from the customer and Securitech is here to make those solutions happen.

SECLUSION ROOM LOCK
Quiet or Seclusion Rooms require effective locking solutions to withstand the force of a patient attempting to break out of the room. Temporary restraint multi-point locking spreads the force across the door and frame at top, center and bottom of the door, and is best suited for environments with adults and large children. Single-point deadbolt locking for time out/seclusion rooms would be acceptable with smaller or less potentially violent patients.
