Within one week I received two requests for help regarding old Von Duprin panic devices. I know that somebody out there has a dusty old file cabinet with information on these products. Ideally, we’d like to find exploded parts diagrams, installation instructions, or any other relevant information. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Sent in by Peter Schifferli, a pair of Von Duprin WDC devices on a church entrance:
And from Rick Lemen, some Von Duprin devices I’ve never seen before, marked “VA”:
And here are a couple more oldies – Von Duprin 44 devices sent in by Nolan Thrope of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies of Metro-NY. According to Nolan, the rim device is still going strong, but the vertical rod devices are missing some parts.
If you have any information about these devices, particularly the first two, please send me whatever you have. If you know someone who might be able to help, please forward this post to them by using the share/save button above. Thanks!!
