I recently had an article published in Security Sales & Integration, that addresses panic hardware from an access-control perspective. It covers the various electrified options, as well as where panic hardware is mandated and the basic code requirements that apply when panics are installed.
When access control is used in a building where panic hardware is required and/or installed, it’s crucial to be familiar with how the model codes address the various applications. To learn more about controlled egress, delayed egress, electromagnetic locking, and other access control systems that utilize panic hardware, click the image below to read the article.
I also have a webinar on panic hardware coming up in April, and registration is open!
