Alarm Lock, a division of Napco Security Technologies, introduces “an easy, economical COVID-19 solution to quickly convert multistall restrooms to single occupancy, to create social distancing and help avoid spread of the virus,” according to an announcement from the company.
The new wireless Trilogy Privacy Standalone Pushbutton PIN Locks solution is geared toward college campuses and K-12 schools as administrators work to reopen and remain as such by employing preventive methods, the announcement states.
Retrofitting standard locks in minutes, the new solution features an inner privacy pushbutton. After entry, using a PIN code or ID card, the user simply pushes the privacy button on the back of the lock, on the inside door, to ensure their privacy, according to the company.
The lock will not open from the front entry side until the user exits, or optionally, the privacy session “times-out” following a preset duration, after a few minutes, up to 250 minutes. A self-adhesive, bilingual usage sign is also furnished.
Alarm Lock Trilogy locks are said to be the No. 1 selling electronic standalone locks in their class, featuring fingertip-programming, vandal-proof all-metal digital keypad and/or built-in smart ID reader, longest battery life (using 5AA off-the-shelf batteries) and field-proven Grade 1 durability for low-maintenance, according to the company.
Other options include GermAway antimicrobial finish (plus several other architectural finishes) and/or optional Keypad Guard (HW2037) that facilitates daily disinfecting and cleaning of faciliites such as restrooms.
Matching Trilogy models are available for all doors and application needs, inside and out, from cylindrical and mortise, to narrowstile and exit trim. Next-gen advanced Trilogy Networx models are networked and controlled via server/PC-network using free Alarm Lock Windows-based software or leading real-time integrated platforms.
