Ives rescue hardware was specifically designed to address a problem often encountered by healthcare professionals—a blocked doorway caused by an incapacitated patient.
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 damage to the frame.
As a valuable element in patient room restrooms, utility closets, and small spaces in hospitals, institutions, and convalescent homes, rescue hardware is composed of either a rescue strike or an emergency stop assembly.
