Doortop Alarm Systems
Doortop Alarm Systems alert staff to potential ligature attempts by sending a signal to the staff attack system when a patient has attempted to wedge something between the top of the door and the frame.
The sensor runs the full width of the door leaf and detects if weight has been applied e.g. weight from a ligature attempt or if anything is jammed between the top of the door and head
of the frame.
The system has a built-in time delay, adjustable between 5 and 30 seconds, to ensure that the alarm won’t be triggered by accidental bumps or by patients playing with the sensor; only a sustained applied weight (as would be the case in a ligature attempt) will trigger the alarm and alert staff to
The door top alarm is compatible with most staff attack systems.
