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.

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.

I am looking for an outside access handle/system through a door fitted with panic hardware inside. This is for after hours hotel guests to come and go. I need to ensure the door is self locking after access from both sides.

To do the job of locking automatically upon closing, we recommend the Exidor 305 mortice operators.  On the inside (push to escape) side of the door you have a normal push bar which comes with a lock case which is morticed into the door.  It comes with a euro profile cylinder and escutcheon as standard so guests may enter from the outside with just a key OR, if you would prefer to give guests a code to enter, then the CL1 mechanical digital lock (with a door handle) is compatible.  If you decide not use a CL1, then you might add a pull handle to the outside of the door.  The 425mm long “D” pull handle in Brushed Stainless Steel is the minimum to meet the Disability Discrimination Act.
