Marks USA, a leader in the Locking Hardware Industry since 1977 announces the release of its new Life Saver series brochure. This 6-page brochure includes a complete line of Ligature Resistant Hardware, Hospital Push/Pulls, Mortise and Cylindrical locksets. The Grade 1 Institutional Life Safety locksets are designed to address Managed Liability, Accident Prevention, Life Safety, and Security in Behavioral Health Care Institutions.

This new Life Saver series brochure offers a full range of product-specification, trim options and standard features. Each lockset has a precise illustration of its assembly allowing the customer to see its construction along with an easy-to-read diagram with the lockset's dimensions. The shape and construction of the SS55 and SS19 Series Locksets are designed to restrict the attachment of lines, laces, etc. to doorknobs. In addition, with the knobs recessed into the rosettes, the chance of capturing a line between the knob and rosette is substantially eliminated. The SS55 and SS19 Locksets are currently in use at Coney Island, Bellevue and Jacobi Hospitals in New York, the Denver V.A. Hospital in Colorado and Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in California to name a few. Marks USA was established in 1977 as a mortise lock manufacturing company that would meet the needs of an expanding market. Since then, the company has grown and expanded its’ product line to include residential, institutional and commercial locksets to meet and exceed the most stringent UL and ANSI specifications.

To receive a copy of the Life Saver series brochure visit or call 1-800-526-0233 and speak to your Mark's USA representative.
