Ligature Resistant Sliding Door System
Product Introduction Date: November 2017
Submitted by: Accurate Lock & Hardware
(203) 348-8865

The Ligature Resistant Sliding Door System was designed with
patient care and staff safety in mind, with the goal of further
eliminating self-harm risks inherent in swinging doors, and
addressing privacy and health-related concerns associated with door
substitutes. The sliding door also helps to improve visibility, and may
allow staff to respond more efficiently to patients in times of need.
Additionally, the LR-SDS helps to reduce noise throughout behavioral healthcare facilities. The dampened closure was designed to
eliminate door slamming and allow quiet operation around the same
level as ambient noise in the room.
Due to the concealed locking mechanism and track, there is no
appearance of bulky hardware or anti-barricade accessories that may
need to be present on swinging doors in high risk areas. This design
supports the concept of patient empowerment and respect.
The LR-SDS is a surface applied sliding door system able to convert
conventional swing doors into ligature-resistant patient safety openings. This allows older facilities to easily update existing doors with
this sliding door solution.

JURY COM M E NT S:
* Sliding doors are becoming a common
element of inpatient environments due to
their space-saving attributes. This product
attractively solves this concern for the
challenging behavioral health environment,
and does so in an attractive way that also
adds to patient and staff safety.
* While barn doors in healthcare bathrooms
are not new, creating them in a safe,
aesthetically pleasing way is! These Ligature
Resistant sliding doors will make creating
safer rooms with greater patient dignity
possible.
* Beyond its targeted use in behavioral health
environments, the simplicity and clean
design of the sliding door quite literally
opens the door to a much broader use in
general healthcare environments such as
exam rooms or toilet rooms where swing
doors consume valuable functional area.
