About Exit Devices

One of the most important things a business owner can do is have a locksmith provide an exit device on any emergency exit doors. These devices provide egress during emergencies for employees and/or customers, so it’s important that they are installed and operate correctly 100% of the time. At The Flying Locksmiths, we can repair or replace any exit device, on any door, with the utmost confidence that it will operate correctly on a daily basis and will coordinate with Fire Code Safety laws.

Understanding the basics of what an exit device is and the terminology associated with these door components is critical to compliance with Fire & Life Safety Codes. While exit devices have been around for a long time, it wasn’t until after several tragic events took the lives of hundreds of people that became trapped inside commercial buildings, that exit devices became required based on the rooms occupancy. You may hear them referred to as “crash bars” or “exit devices” or “panic devices” and often times they are all referencing the same device, but depending on the nomenclature they can be very different things altogether. There are three types exit devices: touch bars, cross bars and integral devices. Those come in four types; Rim, Mortise, Surface Vertical Rod and Concealed Vertical Rod. Knowing which application is right for you, is entirely dependent on your door – but our Physical Security Specialists are standing by to help you identify the right choice.
