Allegion Expands Indication Trim Portfolio, Launches Patented Schlage® Solutions for K-12, Higher Education, Healthcare, and Privacy Applications


Allegion, a renowned provider of security products and solutions, has unveiled an expansion to its indication trim portfolio by introducing three groundbreaking lines of Schlage® Indication Solutions. This innovation caters to the specific security requirements of K-12 and higher education institutions while addressing privacy needs within healthcare, commercial, and retail sectors.

Allegion US proudly announced the expansion of its indication trim portfolio, presenting three new lines of Schlage® Indication Solutions. These solutions, designed with paramount security considerations for K-12 and higher education institutions in mind, also cater to the privacy application needs of healthcare, commercial, and retail markets.

Developed by Schlage, a trusted name in the security industry for over a century, these new visual indication trims set a higher benchmark for security standards. They boast some of the largest viewing windows available, coupled with a patented 180-degree visibility feature ensuring clear messaging from every angle. These trims enhance safety in critical situations, offering unparalleled functionality and durability for Grade 1, fire-rated applications. Noteworthy features include tamper-resistance, color-blind friendly backgrounds, and dual indication options, making them suitable for diverse environments and openings.

John Villanueva, General Manager of Locks & Access Solutions at Allegion, stated, “At Allegion, our commitment to pioneering safety means we listen to customer needs and innovate to create solutions that can truly make a difference in people's everyday lives and in critical moments. The introduction of Schlage's new indication trims is a strategic evolution of our Allegion indication solutions, specifically designed to address the pressing security concerns in K-12 schools and higher education campuses.”

The Schlage indication trims offer increased visibility from any angle, thanks to their large windows and patented viewing technology. This visibility ensures quick confirmation of secure door status, a crucial aspect in educational settings. Additionally, these trims prove beneficial in privacy applications such as patient bathrooms in hospitals or single-use restroom doors in retail settings, where uninterrupted privacy is essential.

Ken Cook, Director of National Safe Schools and Advocacy, highlighted the significance of this innovation, stating, “Knowing the door is securely locked provides peace of mind. This peace of mind allows teachers to focus on teaching, while students can focus on learning. This innovation serves as a prime example of Allegion's dedication to making our nation's schools safer and more conducive to effective education.”

Engineered to withstand the rigors of high-abuse environments prevalent in active school settings, Schlage Indication Solutions boast a Grade 1 BHMA rating, ensuring the highest level of quality, reliability, and durability. This makes them an ideal choice for K-12 classrooms and higher education campuses where enhanced safety and security are paramount.

The new Schlage mortise and deadbolt indicator trims offer dual indication options, catering to applications where knowing the door's locked status from both inside and outside is crucial, such as healthcare and commercial settings.

This latest line of Schlage Indication Solutions further enhances Allegion's existing indication product portfolio, including Von Duprin security indicators designed for high-occupancy areas. By reducing the time needed to tour a facility and providing visual verification at a glance, education and healthcare campuses can now outfit various openings with high-visibility visual status indicators.
