…needs to be opened on a regular basis to allow access for staff but which also needs to discourage the residents from using it, for their own safety. Therefore it needs to be secure but easily opened daily and opened by anyone in an emergency. Have you any suggestions please?
This situation can be addressed using a maglock to secure the door shut, which is operated by a digital code pad on the side which staff need to access from. The maglock would be wired into the fire alarm, so that during a fire the door is operated by anyone. The door itself can have a pull handle on one side and a push plate on the other, or can have a simple latch with lever handles. The maglock is not something we list here online, but contact us for a quote.
