Panic bars and exit devices

Available for our commercial door products, a range of panic bars and exit devices, designed to provide safe and reliable operation on fire-exit doors or doors where simple to use egress is essential. A premium range of reliable and trusted panic bars come with open out exit only or optional external key and handle access from the outside.  Where panic bars aren’t essential, choose push or pull to exit paddle handles, also available with external access, with or without latch hold-back facility.
