Updated: Jan 2, 2020

Accurate Lock & Hardware won Silver, Gold and Innovation Nightingale Awards at the Healthcare Design Expo 2019 in New Orleans, LA. The awards recognize contribution to the healthcare built environment through product design and innovation that contributes to healing. The Gold and Innovation Awards in the Architectural Products Non-Clinical Category went to the LR-EX Ligature Resistant Exit Device Trim. This unique solution works with any manufacturers' panic device trim to create a ligature resistant door opening by housing existing trim in a customized Crescent Handle. The Silver Award recognized the new Ligature Resistant TouchEntry Mortise Set that adds patent-pending touch sensor technology to enhance overall accessibility of the opening.

Some juror's comments include:

"It's great that Accurate Lock & Hardware has so many behavioral health options."

"This is a really smart solution and will meet needs of many facilities. Best features are: retrofitting any hardware to be ligature resistant, warranty, easy to install. It's also very impressive how quickly they were able to turn around a product upon request."

"I love the fact this is hardware brand agnostic! What a great innovation for the door hardware in behavioral health care environments - applicable for new projects and most certainly for renovation/upgrades and modernization projects."
