Delayed Egress Magnetic Locks provide safety and security for your Alzheimer’s resident. Doors equipped with delayed egress locks momentarily delay residents before releasing the lock. This provides adequate time for staff to respond. After a 15 second delay, the lock releases allowing the door to be opened. Keypads at each door equipped with delayed egress locks provide for authorized entry and egress of staff. All delayed egress magnetic locks meet Life Safety Code 101 and conform to all applicable building codes.
Delayed Egress Operation
When pressure is applied to a door with a delayed egress magnetic lock for 2 seconds, an irreversible 13 second countdown is activated that will release the magnetic lock after a combined 15 seconds. After the first 2 seconds, a pulsating audible alarm sounds at the door alerting staff that the door is in delayed egress mode. At the same time, the delayed egress lock sends a signal to the emergency call system documenting the alarm and providing notification to all staff. After the full 15 seconds, the audible alarm will sound continuously and the magnetic lock will release allowing the door to be opened.
Life Safety Code 101
In the event of an emergency such as fire alarm activation or a loss of electrical power, the delayed egress magnetic locks immediately de-energize at all doors. This allows for immediate egress from the building.
