Door Exit Device
We offer commercial door exit devices and panic door hardware including touch bar rim exit devices, surface vertical rod panic devices, concealed vertical rod panic devices, and alarm exit devices for emergency egress door applications. All of our products comply with official NYC code.
How Does a Panic Bar Work?
A panic bar (also known as a crash bar or panic device) is used for quickly unlocking a door during emergency scenarios. The mechanism of panic devices consists of a spring-loaded metal bar fixed horizontally to the inside of an egress-opening door. Push bars are designed for life safety compliance. As such, depressing the lever unlatches the door and allows for efficient exit.
Panic devices allow occupants to efficiently exit a respective building, which helps diminish delays that could be extremely detrimental in emergency situations. So when is panic hardware required? The 2009 edition of the International Building Code requires panic hardware on buildings that are classified as Education (E), High Hazard (H), and Assembly (A) Occupancies along with an occupant load of 50 or more.
What about a panic bar with alarms?
Even if this does not apply to your property, consider having panic hardware installed in order to protect yourself and your clients. Furthermore, installing an alarm alongside this is extremely helpful. Why? Because it alerts others who may not be near the location of the emergency to leave the building.

Panic Device Installation
Panic exit device installation requires extensive technical knowledge and the capacity to identify the corresponding door types that panic devices can be properly used with. Furthermore, having an understanding of panic device core requirements, mounting height, and the diverse characteristics of various push bar brands is necessary to achieve optimal panic exit usage.
We offer high-quality repairs and installation of panic devices for numerous door types (including glass), as well as push bar alarms.

Panic Exit Devices
Our range of Panic Exit Devices reliably secures egress doors in accordance with all applicable fire and safety code requirements.
A panic bar on a door works by pushing on the device that causes a latch mechanism to retract. A panic bar, which is also referred to as a crash bar, is a device found on the inside of a door in buildings, such as schools, hospitals, and hotels.
Adding a panic bar to your door is a great safety feature because it bypasses locks, allowing for immediate exit in an emergency.
Dual door panic exit bar installation (commonly used when doors overlap):
The number one instinct when equipping a dual door with panic exit bars is to put top and bottom 2-point latch vertical rod panic exit bars on each door. However, if there is an overlap this would restrict the movement of one of two doors. Our experienced technicians have seen it all and will ensure that your doors function properly in an emergency situation.
Don’t waste your time and money
Different brands and models of panic bars deliver very different performances. It is always best to choose the panic bar which is best suited for the job at hand because installation of an incorrect one can not only result in a waste of time and money– but it can also be a grave safety hazard.
