Panic Hardware & Exit Devices By Action Lock-South Georgian Bay
Exit Devices were created and are critical for life safety purposes. Panic Hardware and Fire Exit Hardware are two different types of exit devices. Panic Hardware for example is an exit device that although is required to have panic hardware, may not be used on a fire door. Fire Exit Hardware is an exit device which has been properly tested for both fire and panic conditions and is a necessity on fire doors where panic hardware is needed either by code requirements or for resilience. Knowing which one is best suited for your individual needs; requires both the knowledge of the devices themselves and the code requirements for the doors they are placed on. Our Locksmith is well versed with the fire safety codes to determine which Exit Device is appropriate for various applications.
