Product Video and Assembly Tips

Trimming the panic bar to size:
The actual bar that goes between the two handles is provided ready for sizing. To shorten the bar simply cut it with a hack saw or miter saw to the length needed. Drill a 3/16 hole in the bar for the set screw and attach it to the handles.

Order Correct Right or Left Hand Model:
This style of panic bar is set up to be right or left hand and cannot be changed. To determine right or left-hand purchase; stand in front of your door with the door swinging away from you. If the hinges are on your right, purchase a right hand. If the hinges are on the left, purchase a left hand.

Latching and mounting:
This panic bar is surface mounted. The panic bar will be 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. If the door has 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 of the door 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. Since both faces of the door are used for securing the bar it makes for a secure hold.)

Optional products associated with this bar (purchased separately):
Outside door handle with key release
. There are two different models of handle. The level handle and the knob handle which both work the same way. The handle will take the place of that cylinder lock. The handle interacts with the panic exit bar the same way as the cylinder lock that was provided with the panic bar did; as a momentary release. The handle is key-lockable so someone can no longer turn the handle unless they have a key. The key will not disengage the panic bar, only engage or disengage the handle, which then the handle disengages the panic bar. The key in the handle is a non-momentary key.

Surface Mounted Electric Strike. This is another method for releasing the door from outside or 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.

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.

Pull handle / Finger Pull. This accessory is to be used with a cylinder lock which is sold separately. As you turn the key in the cylinder lock to release the panic exit bar you have to pull at the same time. These handles provide something to grab and pull on as you turn the key.
