Sargent FM8700 Series exit device

SARGENT Manufacturing Company offers the FM8700 Series exit device, the only 2-point latching panic hardware that complies with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 361, Design and Construction Guidance for Community Safe Rooms. The FM8700 is a 2-point surface vertical rod exit device developed to help protect lives, secure community shelters and safe room entries. This hardware is designed to withstand extreme wind speeds and flying debris - the two main threats to doors and hardware during a severe windstorm - but also to meet all life safety code requirements for panic egress and fire resistance.
The FM8700 requires no complicated or expensive door prep and is surface mounted to the door. Specially machined rail and internal components make this product sturdier and more robust than standard hardware products. During FEMA 361 testing, this hardware mounted on a pair of ASSA ABLOY doors, kept the doors safely latched and closed during the high windload pressures and 5 missile shots from 2 x 4 lumber with velocities of 100 miles per hour.
