Dortronics Introduces Dual Door Control Bathroom System
Dortronics Systems, Inc., a provider of standard and custom finish access control products, has introduced a new communication-capable, fail-safe control system, ideal for public restroom applications. The 43211-CB Communicating Bathroom System provides power to operate most low-voltage locking mechanisms including maglocks, strikes and electrified locksets, and is ideal for use in a two-door, restroom facility such as those located in dormitories or healthcare facilities.
Either of the “privacy” push buttons will energize door locks for both doors and illuminate the “occupied” high-intensity, LED indicators outside the bathroom. The privacy push buttons also illuminate to indicate to the user when the doors are locked. Both doors must be closed in order to activate the privacy locks. Opening either door, using the mechanical lockset hardware or activating the “emergency release” push button, will unlock both doors immediately. For added convenience and safety, the system includes a fire alarm interface to redundantly unlock both doors for egress.
The power supply/controller provides 4 amps of 12 or 24V DC power and is housed in a NEMA enclosure.
“Assured privacy and convenience with one-touch control is an important design feature of this new system,” said Bryan Sanderford, Dortronics national sales manager. “It’s a unique solution ideal for this specific installation application.”
