Common Types of Door's Hardware-Panic hardware exit devices

- Apr 05, 2019-

Panic hardware exit devices: The Code often requires panic hardware for doors in which the occupants need only push into the door device to exit. Prior to receiving panic hardware, determine how it will be operable from the exterior (lever, thumb-piece, dummy trim, etc.) Many Owner's are disappointed to find they need to "dog down" the panic hardware with an Allen wrench every day to keep it operable from the outside.
