There are two elements to the Rescue Door System invention:
1. A retractable doorjamb using spring loaded catches.
2. A large hinge design specific to the Rescue Door System doorjamb.
A conventional doorjamb is a support frame that a door rests upon when closed, so as to only allow the door to open in one direction. It jambs against the lip of wood that surrounds the outer edge of the door to primarily ensure door closure at a specific position. The jam also prevents dust, light, and sound from entering into a room.
The uniqueness of the Rescue Door System lies in its ability to act as a conventional doorjamb opening in one direction, but when necessary retracting and allowing the doorjamb to open in the opposite direction. This can be achieved by pressing two steel spring loaded catches on the top and sides of the each doorframe. For example, the only way to currently gain access to a person in an emergency situation locked in a bathroom with a conventional doorjamb is by using force. The main design improvement over existing doorjambs is the safety offered in opening a door in any direction.
Quick and easy to install by a builder or home handy man. Kits available for new installations as well as existing dwellings (Retrofit Installation).
A retrofit can be obtained by removing existing doorjambs and hinges and installing the Rescue Door System.
