Briton have a comprehensive and versatile range of exit hardware that combines the functional needs of safety and security with aesthetic lines. Briton exit hardware is the ideal choice for all panic and emergency applications including hospitals, schools, hotels, transport hubs, retail and commercial offices. The Briton 1438 (pictured) is a surface mounted rim latch for single and double door fire exit applications. Simply depressing the pad provides safe and speedy exit in the event of an emergency, whilst maintaining security against intrusion. An adaptor for using a rim cylinder for outside access is supplied as standard. We hold good stock levels of Briton Exit Hardware available for immediate dispatch.
Our local club has an external opening emergency exit door which is fitted with an Exidor panic bar on the inside. Externally there is no way of opening the door and due to the door opening to an external smoking area we would like to fit some sort of hardware whereby the external handle can be disabled for security, but enabled while the property is occupied. This needs to be locked at night. What can we use?

We would suggest a door closer, such as the Geze TS2000, used in combination with an outside access device, such as the Exidor 322EC lockable door handle which will be freely usable during club opening hours, then locked at night.

An OAD is an Outside Access Device; this is fitted on the outside of a final exit door which has been fitted with Panic or Emergency Exit Hardware on the inside. The OAD allows access from the outside by authorised persons. The OAD can also be locked to allow non-key holders to gain entry.

Yes those units are compatible with each other, you only need one 322EC for the double door set.

The Exidor range includes Outside Access Devices (OAD’s) with interchangeable and non-interchangeable cylinders. All the Exidor OAD units, except for the 298 and 409 units, have interchangeable cylinders. The cylinders in the 302 OAD have to be drilled and tapped from the back, but the 322, 400, 500 and 700 series OAD uses the conventional fixing position.

Q: (from Julian) Does the Exidor 305 come with an external access device that accepts a single euro cylinder? And can the euro cylinder be replaced?
A: (from Doorstuff) The Exidor 305 mortice operator does come with a single euro cylinder, which you can replace with an other, for example a masterkeyed cylinder. The cylinder operates a mortice night latch (included) which is morticed inside the door, rather than having an external outside access device. We also supply the euro escutcheon in satin stainless steel. If you especially wanted one with a separate outside access device, you could go for the Exidor 296 push bar on the inside together with the Exidor 302EC which also works with a standard single euro cylinder.
Q: We need to replace our outside door access on the fire door as the keys have been lost. Which is your most economic lock that would be suitable?

A: The least expensive outside access device is the Exidor 298.

Q: (from Ted) Can you identify this lock from my photo and are replacement cylinders available?
A: (from Doorstuff) It’s an Exidor 302 EC Outside Access Device in Silver, and yes, you can purchase replacement cylinders though us. If you have a masterkeyed suite contact us, as it may be possible to obtain a cylinder under your master key.

Q: (from Simon) I am the caretaker of a school. There is a door which must be a fire escape door in a wing of the school which is seldom used. If it is opened in any non-fire related event, then staff in the reception office need to be alerted by alarm so it can be checked and relocked as soon as possible. Sometimes members of the Art Department staff need to enter through this door too. Can it be done?
A: (from Doorstuff) Yes, using a Exidor 296 push bar with Micro switch to link into an Access Control System or Remote Monitoring System for the PUSH side of the door, and an Exidor 322 EC outside access device with keys and a euro cylinder for the other side.
