The progression to becoming the premier ligature resistant door hardware solution.

Over 30 years ago, Accurate developed the Ligature Resistant Safety Knob that quickly became the industry standard for ligature resistance. 

Non-ADA Compliant

Decades later, Accurate developed the Clutching Lever to address the ADA compliance mandate.

Strongly Discouraged in Patient Areas

Accurate developed and patented the Crescent Handle, once again setting the industry standard, eliminating the traverse ligature risks posed by clutching levers. Around this time, the Beveled Safety Latch was created for high-risk environments.

Accurate introduced the High Security Mortise Lock, which is 300x stronger than the Grade 1 standard, for abusive environments.

In response to a request from the State of NY Office of Mental Health, Accurate introduced the Paperclip Resistant Crescent line, which is universally recognized as the premier ligature resistant door hardware solution.

Innovations that contribute to improving overall patient experience were developing including SilentPac™ Solutions and Custom Etching Capabilities.

The Ligature Resistant Sliding Door System is introduced and approved by NYS-OMH as a solution appropriate for all risk areas that saves space and contributes to patient dignity and care along with staff safety.
