AMBICO’s Security Wood Door & Steel Frame has been fully tested by the New York State Office of Mental Health and included in their Patient Safety Standards, Materials and Systems Guidelines document.

Items with this symbol constitute a best practice for all existing facilities and a minimum standard for new construction and
renovation projects at NYS-OMH’s state-operated inpatient hospitals. Unless alternatives are identified in the notes section of the
page, such items are also minimum standards for Article 31 and Article 28 hospitals.

Items with this symbol have withstood paper clip testing in addition to all other applicable testing methods.

Items with this symbol might be suitable for certain inpatient environments; however, they should be used with caution. Some of
these items have institutional characteristics that are not appropriate for an environment that is certified by the Joint Commission,
which requires non-institutional fittings and fixtures. Other items have inherent risks that must be evaluated for their
appropriateness for the intended application. Typically, the associated notes describe why the device is to be used with caution.

Please see the below chart for more information on what defines each risk area.
