Assembly Tips

Trimming the panic bar to size:
The bar comes 40" in total length. The bar does not have to span the entire door if the door is a flat surface so the door can be longer than 40". If the bar needs to be shortened this is easily done. The part of the panic exit bar that is past the alarm key is hollow tubing. Simply cut the hollow tubing to the length needed and put the cap on the end of the bar. This panic bar can be cut down to 30".
Changing from right or left hand mounting:
To switch mount remove the top part of the bar by removing the four screws. Unscrew the flathead screw that is below the spring to disengage the top piece from the panic bar. Loosen the screw the spring is attached to and remove the spring. Engage the spring to the opposite screw, tighten and attach to the opposite hole. Screw the flathead screw on the opposite side to reengage the top piece to the panic bar.
 
Latching and mounting:
This panic bar is surface mount so the panic bar is placed on the rear face of the door. The strike goes on the door frame behind the door, not on the inside of the frame where you may have previously had a handle. On the door if you previously had a handle that will need to be removed. Caps are available for the hole left behind after the handle is removed. Door jamb brackets are also available to cover where the old handle latched to the frame. Mounting bolts are provided however depending on the material the door is made of you may switch to the same diameter in wood screws, self tapping metal screws, or for added strength - sex bolts (sex bolts have a female side on the outside of the door and a male side on the inside of the door and then they join in the middle of the door, Because both faces of the door are used for securing the bar it makes for a very strong hold.)




Alarm:
This panic exit bar is equipped with an alarm. If the panic bar is used when the alarm is enabled the alarm will sound. This is the main feature for purchasing this panic exit bar. The alarm can be disabled via key. Once the alarm is disabled the door can be opened without the alarm sounding. Note: there is no dogging on this panic exit bar. Also if the key cylinder is used to enter from the exterior and the alarm is active, the alarm will sound.
Cylinder release:
This panic bar comes with an exterior cylinder for releasing the panic bar from the outside. The keys are keyed unique. The key release from the outside is just a momentary release. The turn of the key does not dog the door, the panic bar is spring loaded and returns to the locked state when the key is removed.

Optional products associated with this bar (purchased separately):

510 A Alarm Panic Exit Bar. The 520 A series panic bar can be used in unison with the 510 A series panic bar in dual doors. The 520 A series top and bottom latch will lock one of the doors closed to the frame and the 510 A series bar would lock the second door to the first door. This is preferable when dual doors overlap and when wanting to use an electric strike. If your dual doors overlap, using a 510 A Series Panic Exit Bar will allow you to open both doors when pressing the 520 A series push bar. The 520 A series is not compatible with the electric strike, so if wanting to use an electric strike, for intercoms, keypads, or card readers, a 510 A series must be used in unison.

Outside door handle with key release. If you need access from outside you must by this accessory or the door will only be able to be opened from the inside using the panic bar. The handle is key lockable. The key is a non-momentary release, if you unlock the door on the outside to operate the handle you must then relock the door in order for the handle to not open the door. Some keys you can turn and they are spring loaded to return to locked position however this is not one of them. The key will not disengage the panic bar, only engage or disengage the handle, which then the handle disengages the panic bar. The keyed lever handle is available in keyed alike. Please note that if the alarm is active the lever handle will trigger the alarm if opened.

Surface Mounted Electric Strike. The 520 A series is not compatible with the electric strike, unless if used in unison with a 510 A series. This is another method for releasing the door from outside or from a remote location. The electric strike replaces the provided mechanical strike. When the electric strike is not being triggered the panic bar engages it the same as it would a mechanical strike. However when you trigger the electric strike with an access device the door can then be pulled open from the outside. An access device can be a keypad, a card reader, an intercom, a desk push button, a receiver/remote control or even a GSM cell phone receiver. Keep in mind if you purchase the electric strike you will also require a pull handle for the outside of the door and access devices. If the door is released through the surface mount strike the panic bar will not be engaged and the alarm will not sound. This is a good solution if outside access is needed while leaving the alarm on.

Door Closer. There are a couple of variations of door closers with a few different features however the main purpose is the same; to make sure the door stays closed. Because this door will always latch to the strike this is a popular addition to ensure the door stays closed and locked.
