FedLock in Action: Exit Devices
Exit devices are an integral piece of hardware for life safety. The door can be locked to those on the outside, providing security, while allowing single-motion egress from the inside, providing safe passage out of the building in case of fire or emergency. This door is a clearly labeled exit in a hotel so it’s vital that guests can safely use this door in case of emergency.
Pictured below is our team replacing a basic, flat bar with an exit device. The door wasn’t latching properly – and in turn, wasn’t fire code compliant. The best solution was to replace the hardware. The exit device is an “all-in-one” product to latch and lock the door, as well as allow legally mandated egress.
Exit devices come in a variety of styles and finishes to meet your building aesthetic. They can replace existing hardware or it can be a fresh installation. Contact us if you have questions. We have experts who are here to assist!
