I want a panic push bar for a single timber door, but we also require to gain access from the outside using a lock with key. What do you recommend?

Depending on the answer to this question; Do you want the door to lock behind you, after you’ve entered with the key OR do you want to have to re-lock it with the key?  If you want it lock automatically, then we’d recommend an Exidor 305 mortice operator, which comes with a euro cylinder & escutcheon for the outside.  If you want to re-lock it with the key, we’d recommend the Exidor 296 push bar and an Exidor 302EC outside access device.

Q: Can I put panic hardware on an external gate?

June 16, 2011 by · Comments Off on Q: Can I put panic hardware on an external gate? 

A: Yes, you can.  You might consider going for the Exidor 296 push bar or an Exidor 297 push pad.  It may be necessary to shield the panic bar from the outside to ensure security (depending upon the design of the gate).  You may expect a slightly shortened life expectancy for the units due to weather action, but they are a relatively inexpensive purchase.  Be sure to check & maintain regularly.

Does the Exidor 305 accept a single euro cylinder?

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.

A fire escape door with a micro switch for an alarm?

July 14, 2010 by · Comments Off on A fire escape door with a micro switch for an alarm? 

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.
