Enhanced panic hardware

Yale has enhanced its panic exit hardware that’s fast to fit and easy to operate.

The updated Lockmaster panic exit device has been redeveloped for improved fabrication, installation and use, the company said.

Instead of using adjustable bosses, the device now features straight through fixings to guarantee smoother operation for both fabricators and end users. Additionally, all components are supplied in a dedicated kit box to make the installation process much more streamlined.

Paul Atkinson, sales and commercial director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, said: “Safety is more important than ever, and at the forefront of specification we want to make sure our customers have all the information and advice they need to install devices in line with the latest guidance.

“To demonstrate our commitment to customers and continuous improvement, we have redeveloped our panic hardware to enhance the fabrication and installation process, investing heavily in a comprehensive range of marketing and training support to make installation as easy as possible. The resources include a user-friendly installation manual and product instructions as well as a series of ‘how to’ videos.

“The videos demonstrate the installation process for the device as well as how to operate once installed. All of which adds clarity to the installation process making it much more straightforward for our installer customers.”

Specifically designed for use with Yale’s Lockmaster range of multi-point door locks, the Lockmaster panic exit hardware offers the advantage of high performance security and compression, together with accredited emergency egress capability for a wide range of commercial applications, the company said.
