Exidor panic hardware for double uPVC fire escape doors

June 6, 2014 by · Comments Off on Exidor panic hardware for double uPVC fire escape doors 

It is drummed into us how secure uPVC doors are (in addition to their other merits) but unfortunately, where these doors are required to be fire escapes in for example schools, care homes or HMOs, this is a fallacy.  Unless the door was supplied with an integral panic hardware system by the uPVC door supplier, the super secure internal locking mechanism needs to be disabled when surface mounted panic hardware is fitted.  The EXIDOR 5 point locking 502-23 with horizontal pullman catches would give you the best security that can be achieved with Exidor panic hardware for double uPVC fire escape doors while meeting BS EN1125 on panic exit devices.

Is there panic hardware for INWARD opening doors?

November 26, 2010 by · Comments Off on Is there panic hardware for INWARD opening doors? 

Q: (from John) We have a fire exit door that opens inward and we require to fit a lock that can only work from inside the building, do they make such a thing?
A: The Exidor 500 series works on pull-to-open fire escape doors (as well as the more usual push-to-open).  This is because the handle opens the lock when you pull it upwards as well as when you push it down.  501-B or 502A-B for public access areas, 501-P or 502A-P for workplace areas.
