To meet certain code requirements a panic device (crash bar) is exactly what your business may need. A panic device can be installed on your emergency exit doors or front doors.
The panic device is operated by pushing on it which unlatches and opens the door.
They get their name because people will ‘crash’ into them during an evacuation situation such as a fire. By placing these panic devices at waist level, they span across the width of the door so that people can evacuate a building with as few problems as possible. No matter where they hit the panic device, it will unlock the door to allow the user to exit.
Some panic devices can even sound an alarm to notify the whole building of an emergency.
Our locksmiths can inspect your fire doors to make sure they meet Code and fix the doors if they fail inspection.
For your residential or commercial use it is often a good thing to have a panic device or crash bar for security reasons that your business or home can be at its most secure. If you have an emergency situation this spring loaded device can save lives.
