School Safe Double Doors (SSDD) is a new anti-latch device designed specifically for double doors that open out and do not have a center mullion.
Global Innovation’s regular version of School Safe is designed to go on any door regardless of the way it swings or on which side are the hinges. It does require a door jamb in order for it to function properly.
SSDD was developed to install on doors that do not have a center jamb or mullion on which to attach the regular School Safe or protective pad. Many double doors such as are used in gyms, auditoriums or hallway exits do not have center jambs.
Because most double doors from gyms, auditoriums or hallway exits open out, SSDD is designed specifically for them and it will not work on double doors without center jambs that open in.
SSDD attaches vertically on the inside of the door near the top with the ‘pin’ end up and the ‘pull tab’ end down. We recommend that it be placed from 4” to 6” from the latch side edge of the door. The further away from the edge of the door that you place it, the wider the door will hold open. It is not recommended that it be place more than a third of the width of the door from the latch edge. Attach it with the ‘pin’ end fully extended. Before peeling the protective covering from the adhesive tape, test the placement to make sure that when the pin end is fully extended it keeps the door open and that when it is pulled down it allows the door to fully close and latch. Mark the optimal position.
As with the regular School Safe, be sure to clean the surface with the alcohol wipe provided, where the SSDD and the protective pad will attach. Then peel the protective sheet off the adhesive and attach to the door. Mark where the pin hits the jamb at the top of the door, and clean and attach the protective tab. SSDD is now ready to be used.
As with regular School Safe, SSDD is a peel and stick application and installs in minutes with no tools required.
