ASSA ABLOY Double Swing Hinge with Emergency Release Stop: Product Spotlight
Designed for safety and reliability in healthcare environments
The Double Swing Hinge with Emergency Release Stop is an innovative healthcare solution that permits quick door opening in an emergency situation. A double swing continuous hinge is combined with an emergency release stop to provide additional safety features that are easy to use and help minimize risk. ASSA ABLOY offers two styles of double swing hinges and two styles of emergency release stops.
The Markar Double Swing Hinge features a pin and barrel style hinge and the Pemko Double Swing Hinge features a gear style hinge. Both double swing hinge styles have a unique 100º swing that allows the door to swing in either direction. The two models of the Pemko Emergency Release Stop feature either a special flush bolt or a multipoint latch. Both models provide the functionality to release the stop in an emergency situation, allowing the door to be opened in the opposite direction. The stops are used on the strike edge of the door and come standard with hospital tip to complete the solution. The Double Swing Hinge and Emergency Release Stop are accepted by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) for use in high risk areas.
ASSA ABLOY designs and manufactures products to improve safety and mitigate risk in behavioral healthcare and assisted living environments. Applications include patient rooms, patient bathrooms and cross corridor bathrooms. Combine complementary products from ASSA ABLOY Group brands to form an optimal healthcare door opening solution. The Double Swing Hinge and Emergency Release Stop are accepted by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) for use in high risk areas.
Notes: Minimum 23/4" backset for hardware trim. If ERS is installed on a cased open jamb, an extended lip strike is needed. To avoid using the extended lip strike, use a single rabbet jamb on strike side of frame.
This animation shows the operation of the PEMKO Double Swing Hinge and Emergency Release Stop. In the event of a barricaded/blocked door, the ERS is released and the door can then swing out allowing access to the room.
