EXIDOR 302ec outside access device

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.  A great example of one of these is the EXIDOR 302EC (pictured) which can be integrated into your existing masterkeyed suite, if required.

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.
