Starwheel Bolt: 

1. When door closes, the interlocking noseguard and Starwheel bolt close around the strike. The deadlocking slide springs over, locking the Starwheel bolt to the strike.

2. When push bar is depressed, the deadlocking slide moves back, allowing the door to unlock from the strike. This unique interlock provides solid security and prevents jamb spreading
