Beveled Safety Latch
Accurate Advantage Options + Features
Additional Ligature Protection
Beveled Safety Latches were developed to further diminish ligature risks in behavioral healthcare settings. In some cases, the latch bolt itself has been used to anchor bed sheets (or similar) between the door and frame while the door is closed. An upward, downward, or horizontal force from inside the room will cause the latch to retract and release a ligature attempt making it a safe option for high-risk areas.
+ Can be specified with all Accurate 9100 Grade 1 Mortise Locks, with any trim
+ Meets BHMA 156.34 Ligature Resistant Trim Standard
+ Latch bevel on top and bottom diminishes ligature points
+ Whenever the Beveled Safety Latch is specified, locks are modified not to have an anti-pick bolt. Please specify with caution, evaluating every opening for what is most important: safety or security.
+ Not recommended for applications where security is a concern like storage rooms, electric closets, asylum rooms or wherever doors swing out
