Building regulations require all public building to have a minimum number of fire and emergency exits, and crash bars are required to allow people to pass through without a reduction in speed. Doors that are used for exit only do not require a handle on the outside, but can have one fitted to create a two-way door. The bar can be locked in a neutral position allowing it to be opened from both sides.
Our panic doors are designed to be installed in any public building, from schools, hospitals and health centres, to airports, libraries, sports venues and many more. It is essential that visitors can operate the emergency/panic door effortlessly in the event of an emergency, whilst also providing safety and security. Residential doors can also be supplied with panic bars fitted, adding to the security of building.
