Outward Emergency Access with Maxwood Washrooms

  • 16 Jul 2021

Movana, from Maxwood Washrooms, is the first design-led washroom cubicle with safety at the forefront.

In the UK there is a heart attack and stroke every five minutes. In any emergency situation, it is critical to respond fast and avoid further injury to the patient.

Movana is the first full fronted door that grants outward emergency access in eight seconds.

When you specify Movana in your projects, you can rest assured that you’ve taken your responsibility and compliance to the end user seriously.

With LED occupancy and full height door, Movana doesn’t just take the lead on safety. It also offers a stunning full fronted finish that will look at home in any luxury washroom.

How Movana works

In an emergency, a coin, credit card or access card slots into the occupancy indicator. This twists it anti-clockwise out of the door, to release a cord that disengages the door stop. This allows the door to swing outwardly open.

All within eight seconds.
