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.
