Keeping quiet

This case study discusses the successful installation of Von Duprin’s Quiet Electric Latch (QEL) in a healthcare facility. Louder environments are known to increase heart rates and create stress, so Allegion has reduced the QEL’s noise level to create more peaceful environments. Allegion seeks to provide productivity enhancing solutions to customers who value security and durability.


Cost of Noise

Loud noise hurts everyone—and it's especially bad for business. Continued exposure impairs hearing and undermines emotional well-being, exposing employers to potential liabilities. Even at relatively low levels, unwanted noise can be a costly drain on employee morale and productivity.

How does your security impact patient, employee, and visitor satisfaction?

It is often said “people do not shop where they do not feel safe”. In many ways, healthcare consumers are no different. Although often directed to a specific facility by physician recommendation or health insurance constraints, many times the healthcare consumer does have a choice


The vital role of acoustical gasketing

Gasketing's importance derives from a fundamental property of sound: Sound waves travel through any opening with very little loss. While the amount of air flowing through a gap increases in proportion with the size of the gap, the size of the gap in a sound barrier does not matter. 


Designing Hospitals for Quiet Recovery

Today's healthcare facilities are evaluated not only for their ability to provide cutting-edge medical treatment, but also by how peaceful they can make the environment for patient recoveries. This can be a challenge because, by nature, hospitals are busy places filled with constant activity and noise.


The Mechanics of Sound Transmission

When sound comes in contact with a barrier, such as a door, some of the energy from the vibrations transfers to the door. The resulting vibrations in the door itself then set the air in motion on the other side of the door—creating more sound vibrations.


Zero Door Seals

Allegion is proud to introduce leading Zero door seals to the Australian market. Zero is a global leader in the manufacture of door seals, gaskets, threshold plates, and a host of complimentary and ancillary items. 


Electrified options for panic hardware

There are several electrified options available for panic hardware.

Options are often added for access control, but they may also be added for a number of reasons, including remote monitoring of the hardware status, alarms to discourage use of the door, and code compliance for stairwell doors that require re-entry or fire-rated doors where electric dogging is needed.

Choosing the right LCN closer

Door control is not just to close the door, but also to provide enhanced security by properly latching a door that can be adjusted to meet disability compliance. The proper door closer will control a door in both the opening and closing cycles to prevent damage and injury caused by abuse, wind or other factors.
