WW: Blocked Exit Sensor

Category: Egress,Electrified HardwareLori @ 10:48 am Comments (4)

I saw this application twice in one week…the exit sensor for the mag-lock mounted behind the exit sign. It definitely affects the range of the sensor.  The code requirements for mag-locks do not address exact placement of the sensor, but this seems like common sense, no?

    What came first the scanner or the sign? The chicken or the egg?

    There is one to the right of it, maybe either one will release all the doors

      Good eye Charles. That’s a separate door and based on my experiments with the one with the exit sign, I don’t think the other one is wired to the pair.
