GfS Exit Control 1125 to secure emergency exits equipped with panic bars
The EN 1125 specifies that emergency exits must be equipped with horizontal panic bars (or touch bars). Persons who in case of panic are pressed against the panic bar force the emergency exit door to open. As emergency exit doors may not be locked from the inside, they are a major security concern to building operators. Often enough they are abused for different reasons. Therefore, the panic bar should be secured with an emergency exit solution from GfS.
The GfS Exit Control 1125 has proved to be an ideal solution for panic bars. It creates an effective inhibition threshold and prevents that unauthorized persons use the emergency exit. At the same time national regulations and European norms for emergency exits are respected. When pressing the panic bar the GfS Exit Control 1125 drops down causing an acoustic alarm. Only with a key, the GfS Exit Control 1125 can be returned to its original position while the alarm is going to be switched-off. The key is also required to move the GfS Exit Control 1125 into the permanent opening position. It is possible to bypass the GfS Exit Control 1125 by taking advantage of the alternating function of the door lock.
Due to the innovative screw -free housing the GfS Exit Control 1125 is tamper protected. The sturdy metal housing and the high quality workmanship guarantee a long life even in rough environments. The GfS Exit Control 1125 comes with a 5 year warranty.
The MPA North Rhine - Westphalia has tested and certified the GfS Exit Control 1125 in combination with different panic bars according to DIN EN 1125.
