Panic Escape Hardware
When an emergency situation arises in a public building, it is essential that an unobstructed escape route is available, with emergency exits that can be instantly and easily opened but that remain locked when not in use. This calls for specially-designed panic escape hardware, such as push bars, escape bolts and door closers.
Some products are operated by simply pushing a bar or push button, while others, like the Kidde Thorn 'Redlam' Fire Bolt MK2, are opened by breaking a ceramic tube with a small hammer. Many panic escape hardware items incorporate additional features, such as the Cooper Bolt 103 Push Model, which has a battery-operated electronic door alarm that will sound automatically when the exit is used but has a switch that can be used to deactivate the alarm and provide silent access if necessary. easylocks stocks a wide range of panic escape hardware from top brands such as Exidor, Cooper and Briton.
