Ozone, the leading provider of innovative architectural hardware solutions, introduces the fire-rated push panic bars for fire exit doors. It is important to install a fire-rated push panic bar on a fire exit door so that door remains functional even in case of fire hazard. Push panic bar works on a press bar mechanism i.e. push & open, which allows people to move out securely from the building at the time of panic or emergency by simply pushing the bar at any point and opening the door.
As per demand these are made available in different variety such as – 1 point locking push panic bar for single leaf door and 2 point locking push panic bar for double leaf door. They are crafted with stainless steel latch and security anti-thrust latch. These do not have dogging device hence once people pass through, door secure itself and restricts fire spread. The new fire-rated push panic bars are certified as per UL 10C for 1-3 hours fire rating; for metal door – 3 hours fire-rated and for wooden door – 1.5 hours fire-rated.
These are suitable for maximum door thickness of up to 60mm. The external body and rear cover plate of these are made of SS 304 grade. They are compatible with Ozone external trim, OZ-PB- CTRIM-D- STD SS.
