Bolts and Strikes: The patented top latching mechanism utilizes a rotating top bolt which deadlatches around the header strike, interlocking the door to the frame. For wood frames, an additional plate is supplied for securing the header strike. The hexagonal, hardened steel bottom bolt is shielded in a cast housing for strength and stability.

Top Rod Only: The surface vertical rod exit device is also available with a single vertical rod on top. Specify by adding “T” after exit device number.

Options and Accessories:
Silent Electrification Motorized Latch Retraction: The SE Motorized Latch Retraction option provides near-silent operation for quiet environments such as hospitals, offices, hotels, and libraries where solenoid-driven devices would be disruptive.

Electric Latch Retraction: The LR option uses a solenoid mounted in the pushbar for instantaneous unlocking and locking of the exit device from a remote location or access control device. LR Option is not available on rim type exit devices (see EL option).

Alarmed Exit Device: This battery-operated option emits a loud (95 decibel) alarm to notify management of unauthorized exit. Available on minimum opening width 36". Cannot be ordered with other exit device options.

Request to Exit (REX) – Monitor / Signal Switch: Mounted in the exit device pushbar on the hinge end, the switch can be used to activate signal light, horn, monitor, or other devices.

Cylinder Dogging: For management control of dogging exit devices for life-safety exit devices only.

Electric Dogging: A holding magnet keeps the pushbar depressed (set manually) and the latch retracted for lower profile exit devices, resulting in less damage and quieter operation.

Matching End Caps: Matching end caps are available for applications where it is preferable that the end caps match the finish of the exit device. Available for US finishes only.
