ASSA ABLOY launches new panic and emergency exit hardware

ASSA ABLOY has launched a new range of and touch bar panic and emergency exit devices for aluminium doors. The hardware range consists of push bar, push pad and touch bar panic and emergency exit devices and external hardware specifically designed for aluminium doors with Concealed Vertical Rods (CVR).

Ideal for new builds and renovations on private and commercial projects, such as retail and hospitality spaces, the range can also be retrofitted to the most common current hardware products in the marketplace. 

Independently tested and certified to EN 1125 and EN 179, the hardware is fully compliant to UKCA and CE standards. The products have also passing the rigours of PAS 24. 

The external hardware can be locked off to prevent un-authorised entry, without compromising building users’ ability to escape. The OAD lever shape and panic products help meet the requirements of BS 8300, ensuring buildings are accessible by all users. 

Alison Aston from ASSA ABLOY said: “Building on our heritage in the aluminium door hardware market, with our brands like Adams Rite, the new range is easier for our customers to stock and simpler to install, saving them time and cost. Thanks to our in-house expertise, our products are UK designed, tested, and manufactured – providing added supply chain security and quality assurance. When creating the new range, we’ve listened to customer feedback, and have developed products that are affordable and instantly compatible with PAS 24 and non-PAS 24 doorsets, reducing the need for additional stock holding and/or door fabrication. Plus, as a retrofittable product, they are quick to install and can instantly upgrade a building’s aesthetics and safety.” 

Suitable for a wide variety of applications, the new range can be used on either single or non-rebated double doors and both the push bar and touch bar can be cut to size on site, allowing for a more bespoke fit.
