The Redlam panic bolt locks and secures single external fire exit doors from the inside without jeopardising a safe escape. In an emergency the Ceramtube™ is broken with a small hammer chained to the Redlam unit, resulting in the panic bolt sliding back automatically and unlocking the door. The panic bolt can also be released by authorised personnel by removing a padlock (not provided) which keeps the Ceramtube in position.
The table below shows the accessories that are compatible for use with the Redlam Panic Bolt - MK1 and MK2.
|Model Number||Type of Unit|
|TGPBTUBE||Spare Ceramic Tubes - Ceramtubes|
|HSTGL1||Replacement Glass Tubes|
|TG39/51921||Replacement Hammer and Chain|
This is the technical data for the Panic Bolt MK1 & MK2 - Redlam.
Q. Which panic bolt is suitable to use on an external gate?
A. The Kingpin emergency bolt, which is available with a stainless steel bolt and is powder coated can be used externally.
Q. Can a panic bolt be fitted with a push pad to an emergency exit door for extra security?
A. No,a panic bolt should not be fitted to an emergency exit already fitted with a push pad device, as in an emergency situation both devices would have to be operated to open the door which could result in confusion. For extra security an alarm device such as the exit stopper door alarm can be fitted. This device is fitted to the door and when the push pad is used and the door opens the alarm sounds to signal that the emergency exit has been opened.
Q. Does the Redlam Panic Bolt meet the requirements of BS EN 1125 ?
A. The Redlam Panic Bolt does not conform to BS standard. However we do list other panic bolts on our website which conform to BS standards. http://www.safelincs.co.uk/Fire-Exit-Door-Equipment/
Q. Can glass panic bolts still be used?
A. Currently there is no legislation related to glass panic bolts to say they cannot be used. However the glass replacement tubes do produce sharp edges. There is an alternative product that can be used which is ceramic and does not produce sharp edges when smashed.http://www.safelincs.co.uk/Ceramtube-Spare-Ceramic-Tube-for-the-Redlam-Panic-Bolt/
