Rescue Hardware

Rescue hardware is a unique strike that allows a bi-directional door to swing in emergency situations.

Ives rescue hardware is designed to address a blocked doorway caused by an incapacitated patient, which is a problem often encountered by healthcare professionals. Used in conjunction with center hung pivots, rescue hardware allows a bi-directional door swing in emergency situations. When a patient becomes trapped behind an inward swinging door, the center tong depresses, allowing the door to swing in the opposite direction without causing frame damage.
As a valuable element in patient room restrooms, utility closets, and small spaces in hospitals, institutions, and convalescent homes, rescue hardware is either a rescue strike or an emergency stop assembly.
