More Than A Good Idea – A Requirement

Exit devices are sturdy, convenient, versatile, secure and safe. That these devices are known as Crash Bars or Panic Bars gives you an idea of the beating these devices are designed to endure. ANSI/BHMA 156.3 Grade 1 standards require 500,000 cycles, of 400 lbs opening pressure, for certification!

Because Exit Devices are so easily operated, and under extreme conditions, they are required for commercial Emergency Exits.  They’re also versatile and dependable for interior doors.

Hands Free Simple Security

Exit Devices keep the door closed and locked from the outside, but allow for hands-free, convenient exit from the inside.  Just lean against it with your hips and you’re through the doorway. Imagine approaching a regular door with your hands full and just staring at the doorknob. Ugh. Exit devices smooth workflow and the design is even easily operated by children and folks with limited movement.  Because they’re so convenient and durable is why you’ve seen them in so many places:  hospitals, movie theaters, offices, township buildings, restaurants, schools and stores.  Anywhere you need to allow for easy flow of people and still need solid security is where you should have an Exit Device installed.

Certified Fire Door Inspectors

When these Exit Devices don’t work right, it’s not just a matter of convenience, but of code.  Note that  the NFPA’s  (National Fire Protection Association) code establishes a mandatory annual inspection of all fire rated doors. This law requires documented inspections, once every year, of fire or egress rated door assemblies.  We are certified to perform Fire Door Inspections. Call Advanced Lock & Security now to schedule a Fire Door Inspection.

Exit devices take a beating, but they have to work.  To keep things right, there are adjustments that can be made and parts that can be replaced.   Please call us to make sure you’re problems are solved correctly because, it’s not just about convenience, it’s about security, safety and code.

What Client’s Say

I hired Advanced Lock & Security to do some work on my house. They were clean and neat, did work in a timely fashion, and were creative when they ran into unexpected issues. They resolved the issues quickly, and it was an overall easy experience.

Advanced Lock & Security rekeyed all the locks to my home and everything went fine. The technician was prompt, courteous, and he got the job done quickly. This was my first experience with their company, and I’d use them again.

I had Advanced Lock & Security come over to fix the key lock in my front door. It was my first time using them, and the technician did the work very quickly. He explained what he was doing.
I asked about a problem with my screen door, and he had the problem fixed in a snap.
