March 14, 2014 by · Comments Off on Latch a surface mounted panic latch to a double rebated door – use a box keep 

300-box-keepThis handy little keep is mounted to the edge of the first opening leaf of a fire escape door or crash door and provides a keeper for the surface (rim) mounted panic latch bolt in the case of a double rebated door.  The EXIDOR 300 box keep (shown above) is supplied as standard with the EXIDOR 296-4 panic hardware kits, the BRITON 378 DDS box keep is supplied as standard with the BRITON 376-8 panic hardware kits, and both can be bought individually as a spare part.

With a standard Briton 376 two point locking push bar the maximum door size can be up to 1300mm wide & 2500mm high – anything smaller than this and you just cut the bar or shoot bolt tube down with a hacksaw while fitting.  The standard Exidor 294 two point locking panic bolt will fit doors up to 1220mm wide & 2440mm high, but it your door is even bigger than this, then oversize extras can be purchased as upgrades to the kit: push bars and/or top shoot tubes are available at 1600mm long and at 2100mm long. This means Exidor panic hardware can cater for whopping door leaves up to a maximum 2150mm wide & 3180mm tall.

Why can a 410 OAD not be used to operate a 297 / 296 Panic Latch or a 294 Panic Bolt?

Because the mechanism on the 200 series units operates in one direction only and the amount of travel is limited. Therefore the lever handle would not fully retract the bolts and latches and would also not operate downwards in a normal manner. Also, all accessories need to be listed on the Manufacturers Declaration of Conformity, and using any accessory not listed will negate the CE marking and may lead to prosecution.
