What is this?

Instead of Wordless Wednesday, I need some help identifying a product.  It’s in a detention facility.  If you know the manufacturer, model number, and/or purpose, leave a comment!

Detention Hardware

    Lori,

    this is a door position switch, this tells the guard shack what door is open and whats closed,it is armless for safety reasons (suicide/aggressive inmate)

    this would make a great closer, as its “armless” and less moving parts!

    as for brand/series, this best sounds like what your looking at

    hope this helps!

    -Jess the door closer doctor

    Looks to me as a retro-fit floor closer

  3. Todd Brady says:

    It is a door position switch.

  4. aaron brassington says:

    Looks like a door position switch. It turns on a light or buzzer to show door open/closed.

  5. Tom Pekoc says:

    Is it a detention grade door position switch?

  6. Bryan McKeehan says:

    I think Jess nailed it. I was going to say an anti-ligature reinforcing pivot. Regardless, it is not installed very well, as the door portion is not square to the world.

    Formerly Southern Steel 220 Door position switch.

  8. T.J. Gottwalt says:

    Lori, this is a switch, usually used for door position, but can also trigger other detention-related relays, such as locking other doors (think sally port).

  9. Ryan Pfeiffer says:

    Seems like an awful lot of hardware compared to a concealed $20 DPS.

    It looks like a 220A door position switch from Southern Steel. See page 10 of their catalog: http://www.southernfolger.com/files/Southern_Steel_Accessories_Section_2013_09302013.pdf
