All hardware at Banner Thunderbird utilizes MicroShield® anti-microbial finish to help minimize infections and the spread of bacteria - a critical consideration in the healthcare setting.
Lamon explained that Sargent was involved at the inception of the project while decisions were being made on exactly what would go where.
“Right from beginning they were involved, making sure that we chose the right products for each area,” he said. “They worked directly with me and the architect. It was definitely a team effort to get the equipment we wanted.”
While Sargent does not install its products, the company ensured that a hardware specialist was present throughout the process in case changes needed to be made on the fly.
“Their hardware specialist was particularly helpful when we had to make changes to one specific door,” Lamon recalled. “Sometimes changing one thing means changing everything.”
Lamon’s — and Banner’s — satisfaction with the locks goes beyond their actual performance.
“Not only do the locks work the way they were intended, they’re very attractive. They even feel good; sometimes that’s a person’s first impression of a product, when they touch it. That’s certainly the case with door locks.”
The appearance of the locks, while certainly pleasing to Lamon, was truthfully not a strong consideration for him when the product criteria were being outlined.
“I helped make decisions on what I would like to see on the door based largely on function and ease of use, as well as the ease of replacing current items,” he said. “Aesthetics wasn’t as strong an area of concern for me as it was for the architectural folks. Architects tend to favor the mortise locks, with their cleaner-looking lines, where I personally like the more basic, bored-through locks.”
