Designed for applications such as health care facilities, where security is a high priority for protection of patients and employees, the patented Detex Delayed Egress/Latch Retraction device integrates both functions for more efficient operation.
It has no external magnets, electric strikes or electric trims. Everything is contained in the rim device, so there are fewer components to install, and fewer to malfunction. 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. 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. Information: Detex.com/EEXER.
