The model codes require panic hardware for locations that are subject to emergency egress for a high occupant load, and also for rooms housing certain types of electrical equipment. When panic hardware is required, there are additional mandates that must be followed regarding the operation of the hardware. Fire doors add yet another layer of requirements for this hardware, and there are also exceptions that apply in some locations.
This webinar will explain when and where panic hardware is required, why it is used, and what other code requirements and exceptions need to be considered when selecting these devices. Code requirements for electrified options including access control, delayed egress, controlled egress, and electromagnetic-lock release will also be addressed. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the webinar.
The live version of this webinar will offer continuing education credits for the following organizations:
