Panic Devices / Panic Bars
Commercial Grade Exit Devices
To meet certain code requirements a panic device, also known as a crash bar or exit device or push 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 come in a variety of colors, styles, functions, and grades.
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 hindrances 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.
