Healthcare Case Study – Southmead Uses Digital Locks

Product: SBL365 Mechanical Digital Lock

Location: Bristol

Southmead Hospital is a large public National Health Service hospital, situated in the area of Southmead in the northern suburbs of Bristol. The new development costing £430 million, have fitted the Securefast SBL365 Fire Rated Mechanical Digital Lock throughout the hospital as they wanted a lever operated device that could cope with the high level of traffic that would use the doors on a regular basis.

The SBL365’s have been fitted to some timber doors measuring almost 2.5 metres high on private rooms and storage cupboards. The SBL365 Mechanical Digital Push Button Lock have been used with both tubular latches and mortice escape locks offering a non-sequential code with a choice of over 2,000 combinations and always allowing free egress from the inside.
