This is a new one.  Translation: “Emergency Exit. Break and Press.”

I don’t think so.

    The base device looks quite similar to a Von Duprin 88. Is that an aftermarket retrofit?

      It looks like an 88 to me too. I don’t know if this is commercially available somewhere. The possibility scares me.

    Von Duprin used to make a very similar exit alarm with the 88F center case.
