Dual Way Anti – Barricade Door System

The Dual Way Anti – Barricade Door System, designed and manufactured by Cooke Brothers, is a purpose made doorset solution designed specifically to address the needs of today’s challenging mental health and custodial environments, where the risk of ligature or self harm are prevalent.

The Dual Way Door System provides unrestricted and immediate access into a room in a situation where a patient has barricaded himself or herself in.

The Dual Way Door System is suitable for either new build or for retrofit applications where individual doorsets are required within an existing facility. The Dual Way system utilises a frame within a frame principal, allowing for a standard 44mm or 54mm doorset to be mounted within a secondary high security steel outer frame.

In everyday use the standard inward opening doorset operates as a normal door, providing full 90-degree access using a purpose designed full height Anti-ligature continuous hinge. The outer frame preformed steel frame provides rigid support and security by means of heavy duty purpose design mechanical hook bolt locking or with the option of an electronically powered locking system

In an emergency or barricaded door situation the doors and inner frame can be quickly released enabling the complete doorset to swing outwards allowing immediate access into the room. Access is achieved by releasing the dual hook locks mortised into the outer frame and operated by unique security profile keys.

The Dual Way Anti-barricade system has been designed to suit the majority of standard 44mm and 54mm doorsets, including both FD30S AND FD60S options where required. The Dual Way system is adaptable to accommodate alternative door thickness subject to special order. The steel frame can be supplied in a range of standard finishes or with the choice of special options to suit specific requirements.

Outer and inner frames are secured with two purpose-designed heavy duty mortise hook bolts, which are supplied complete with anti tamper escutcheons and dedicated security keys. Alternative electronic locking systems can be supplied subject to client specification. A wide range of matching Anti-Ligature door furniture and high security mortise locks are available to meet exacting specifications or Dual Way can be supplied ready to receive existing ironmongery.

The Dual Way system incorporates unique Interleaf continuous hinges, which incorporates anti-ligature end tips and provides a minimal gap between the door and frame. The full height continuous hinges provide even weight distribution and substantially increased strength over pivoted doorsets, eliminating the potential for splitting under impact or during abuse. The Dual Way system is designed for use with the concealed frame mounted door closing devices.
