The releasable door chain is fitted exactly the same way and position as a conventional door chain, however access from outside can be made via a standard rim cylinder, using an individual key.
Do you have an elderly relative or friend who insists on leaving the chain on the door and you are worried that you won’t be able to get into their home in an emergency? The releasable door chain provides peace of mind for friends and family knowing they will be able to gain access to the user’s home should the user be unable to get to the door.
How does it work?
Designed without compromising the original security that a normal door chain provides. The releasable door chain can be fitted in exactly the same way and same position as with a conventional chain, however when the chain prevents entry, access from outside can be simply achieved via a standard rim cylinder, using an individual key.
Why is it needed?
Releasable door chains give people added security, however problems can arise when the person inside is unable to get to the door to release the chain. This can prevent family, carers or the emergency services gaining entry resulting in forcible entry.
What is telecare?
Telecare helps to manage risk and support independence by means of unobtrusive wireless sensors placed around the home which detect possible problems such as smoke, gas, flood or a person falling.
