Top Door Alarm®: When Seconds Matter, No Pressure Required

Through its Door Control Services division, DH Pace offers a detection and notification system named Top Door Alarm® to alert caregivers of potential acts of self-harm when a door is used as a ligature point.

Patented under US00864620B2, Top Door Alarm® protects more than 3,000 patient room doors across the nation. Top Door Alarm® uses strategically positioned sensors. These sensors detect any presence between the transmitter and receiver before pressure is ever applied to the door.

In addition, it provides audio and visual notifications to alert staff of a pending act. This provides staff with critical additional time to respond to a self-harm event when seconds can mean the difference between life and death.

Installed at nursing stations, the Top Door Alarm® control panel provides constant patient monitoring. Also, it is connected to an emergency power supply with an internal battery backup to provide continuous power in the event of a power failure.
