If you want a new exit device for your building in Portland, OR area, Portland Emergency Lock & Key provides a panic bar fresh installation service at an affordable price. We have many types of push bars in our inventory that you can pick from.
How do they work?
A panic bar is a locking mechanism that operates when pressure is placed on it. You don’t need a key to unlock it – just a push is all that is necessary. During regular situations, even children can push down on the panic bar to get it open. During panic situations, it’s possible for people to ‘crash’ into the door and the device will trigger after a certain amount of weight has been placed on it.
Panic bars are designed for quick exit during emergency situations, provided they are installed correctly – which is why it’s important you hire professionals for the panic bar fresh installation. They keep the door locked from the outside, and can only be opened from the inside.
Types of panic bars
Our service can set your commercial property up with a variety of bars, including ones that have alarms installed on them for maximum security. Here are some of the most popular kinds:
- Rim type: The rim type crash bar, like the rim type lock, is mounted inside the door’s surface.
- Mortice type: The mortise bar goes into a cavity in the door’s surface.
- Vertical concealed type: The concealed type, as the name suggests, is concealed. It is a good choice if you’re worried about the décor of your property.
Our panic bar fresh installation service can either install a single type of panic bar or a combination of panic bars, depending on the doors in question. Panic bars can be mounted on both single entry as well as double entry doors.
