Secure Emergency Door Alarm

Prevent suicide attempts in a healthcare or behavioral care setting with the Secure Emergency Door Alarm, or SEDA.

This patented full-width door sensor monitoring system works in conjunction with SPSL locksets. It is activated by attempts to drape an item over the door to serve as an anti-ligature mechanism. The sensor bar incorporates a curved design to ensure maximum sensitivity to pressure. In addition, full-surface continuous hinges have been designed in an anti-ligature fashion and transfer the SEDA signal from the door to the frame.
