Exidor 306 panic hardware – for when that escape door absolutely has to lock behind you

May 27, 2014 by · Comments Off on Exidor 306 panic hardware – for when that escape door absolutely has to lock behind you 

exidor 306 panic latch mortice operator
The Exidor 306 is a panic hardware push pad actuator unit with a cylinder mortice night latch case that will lock behind you everytime you leave or enter the building through the fire escape.  Each time a user tries to enter they will need to use the key.  This is ideal for buildings where the users are not trusted to lock the door from behind, and this security feature can be augmented by fitting a door closer.  Supplied with or without a Euro profile cylinder.  A mortice plate is also supplied as standard.  The unit provides security on the outside with ease of escape from the inside in emergency situations.

The EXIDOR CL1 outside access device is a code entry lock which automatically locks when the door latches shut with the compatible EXIDOR panic hardware unit (296, 297, 501 etc).  The CL2 has the optional setting of “passage function” which suspends the automatic re-locking, permitting the handle to be used freely without the code.  The CL2 can be set back to code locked only.

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.

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.
