Safelincs offers an extensive range of panic and emergency hardware for exit doors. Our panic bars and emergency pads are installed on the inside of final exit doors to ensure fire exits open without people having to unlock the exit door if there is a a fire. We also sell a range of more general fire exit hardware, such as illuminated fire exit signs, outside access devices, key boxes and exit door alarms, so you can meet all of the necessary fire safety regulations, while ensuring that all emergency exits are secured against un-authorised entry.
Our panic bars and panic latches are installed on the inside of final exit doors of public spaces such as assembly areas or shopping centres to ensure fire exits open without people having to unlock the exit door if there is a panic or fire. The panic bars, also called crash bars or push bars, will open the fire exit door if people are pushed against the door in a panic and do not require any manual action. At the same time they offer excellent protection against burglars by deploying shot bolts locking into the frame of the door. These bolts retract automatically when the push bar is operated. Outside access devices allow the override of the panic bar from the outside using either a key or keypad for access.
Where the occupants of a building are familiar with the fire escape routes and exit doors, eg in an office building, emergency pads, also called push pads or emergency latches and emergency bolts are installed on fire exits. When leaving the building in an emergency, the staff member simply pushes the push pad with his/her hand, which will retract the shot bolts or latch. The pads can be overridden from the outside with a outside access device such as a key operated door handle or a keypad.
