• OVER-THE-DOOR ALARM THAT HELPS
    WARN OF SENTINEL EVENT SUICIDES.

    The door switch is an over-the-door sensor that alerts behavioral
    healthcare when an inpatient attempts self-harm. A top-of-the-door
    alarm immediately notifies attending staff of a hanging suicide attempt.

THE DOOR SWITCH IS THE FIRST PATENTED DOOR SENSOR

The Door Switch is the only door sensor that extends above the top of the door. Numerous national testings and developments have made “The Door Switch” a premiere ligature resistant product for top of the door protection, with a finely tuned sensitive pressure switch that runs across the top of the door and eliminates hinge points. Our team of special engineers have personally tested and created “The Door Switch” to easily retrofit with most of the standard doors throughout the United States of America (U.S.A.) and have passed hospital’s standard inspections for smoke doors. Though no one product can claim it is 100 percent suicide proof, we can confidently help our customers “Make the Switch” to the best product on the market for top of the door coverage, minimal false alarms, and ensuring patients’ privacy.
