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.

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

December 7, 2010 by · Comments Off on 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.
