Fire Code Friday: Panic Hardware
TGIFire Code Friday! You are likely familiar with the basics of panic hardware, but there are a few very important details to keep in mind:
1. The actuating portion of the device must be at least half the width of the door.
2. The device must be mounted between 34-48 inches above the finished floor.
3. Panic hardware shall not be equipped with a lock or other device that prevents the release of the latch.
