Detex Corporation has made available an exclusive advancement in access control panic devices. Where security is a high priority for protection of patients and employees, the patented Detex Delayed Egress/Latch Retraction device integrates both functions in one device for more efficient operation.
This design is well-suited to department routines – for example, controlling access to surgical suites from holding areas, or restricting entry to nursery areas or pharmacy facilities. They also appreciate the smooth pushpad, which doesn’t snag on clothing or equipment.
Since everything is contained in the rim device, so there are fewer components to install, and fewer to malfunction and affect performance. Operation is simple: for authorized personnel, the latch retraction operates with the access control system, bypassing delayed egress to allow exit and entry without sounding the alarm. But unauthorized entry triggers a 100dB alarm and keeps the door locked for 15 seconds, allowing time for staff to respond. A fire alarm input provides life safety override for immediate exit during a fire emergency.
Detex is known internationally for life safety and security door hardware, loss prevention and architectural hardware, integrated door security systems, and guard tour verification.
