Grasping the essentials of an exit device and the related terminology is paramount, particularly when striving for adherence to Fire & Life Safety Codes. For many, the understanding of an exit device on a door might seem straightforward, but its history and significance are profound. Although exit mechanisms have been in existence for ages, their widespread mandate on doors wasn't until after calamitous incidents resulted in the tragic loss of numerous lives. These incidents spotlighted the dire need for safe egress in commercial buildings, especially in spaces with substantial occupancy.

While many use terms like “crash bars”, “exit device”, or “panic devices” interchangeably, it's imperative to note that based on context, these might denote varied mechanisms. Fundamentally, there are three primary categories of exit mechanisms: touch bars, cross bars, and integral devices. These can further be classified into four distinct types tailored for different doors: Rim, Mortise, Surface Vertical Rod, and Concealed Vertical Rod. The rim type, for instance, is affixed on the outer edge of the door, providing a robust and easy exit mechanism, often crafted in durable steel.

The complexity might seem daunting, but choosing the right exit device is largely influenced by the specific door in question. It might be a steel door requiring a heavy-duty rim mechanism, or a more intricate door system necessitating a concealed rod. Regardless, our Physical Security Specialists are ever-prepared to guide you in making an informed decision, ensuring that every exit point on your door not only conforms to safety standards but also meets your individual needs.
