ADA-Accessible Hardware Donated to Ronald McDonald House
Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies has recently outfitted the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana with new automatic openers and panic bars. The Indiana-based firm donated the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-Accessible hardware to help wheelchair-bound guests more easily maneuver around the 50,000-square-foot home.
“Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies is extremely proud to help support the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana,” says Dave Sylvester, president, Americas, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies. “Our high-performance products have helped many companies achieve ADA compliance and we are happy to provide assistance to a charitable and local organization.” Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies installed Von Duprin Panic Devices 9927 and LCN 4640 Automatic Openers on two exterior doors, including the main entrance, and two interior doors. The new hardware makes opening doors an effortless task for the families with seriously ill or injured children being treated at Indianapolis-area hospitals who stay at the Ronald McDonald House.
The donation was made possible through the Ronald McDonald House’s connection with Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), which has exclusively used Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies’ panic devices, door closers and automatic operators for the last 16 years.
