Part of Devon Buy with Confidence

No quibble returns

Our local club has an external opening emergency exit door which is fitted with an Exidor panic bar on the inside. Externally there is no way of opening the door and due to the door opening to an external smoking area we would like to fit some sort of hardware whereby the external handle can be disabled for security, but enabled while the property is occupied. This needs to be locked at night. What can we use?

We would suggest a door closer, such as the Geze TS2000, used in combination with an outside access device, such as the Exidor 322EC lockable door handle which will be freely usable during club opening hours, then locked at night.

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.

(from Peter) Q: I need to replace a damaged Exidor panic bar assembly for a Tesco’s store. I do not know which model it is so I have included a photo to help identify it.

(from Doorstuff) A: It’s an Exidor 503A-B push bar in Silver.  Contact us for price and availability as it’s not listed on the website yet.

I am looking to replace a digilock on a panic bar door. However I am interested in one that I am able to deadlock at night once everyone is out of the building. Is there such a thing?

You can use the CL1 outside access device mechanical keypad outside (compatible with an Exidor push pad or push bar inside).  This cannot be deadlocked, but it may be possible to add an additional separate deadlock to the door, but you would need to pass this with your local fire officer who will decide based on the usage of the building/door.
