To comply with fire codes, exit hardware must be installed on many doors that go to the outside of the building. Fire codes and Life safety codes involve a “No special Knowledge” clause which states that a person should need no special knowledge in order to open the panic door, it is just a simple push that can open the door.
Panic bars do have a downside, and that downside is that anyone can exit your devices with a small push without your knowledge or permission, such as thieves. To combat this problem, security device manufacturers have attached loud alarm systems to the panic doors that sound a loud alarm when depressed.
Another option to combat this problem is a installing a code approved delayed egress, alarmed, panic device. A delayed egress device when installed can keep the door locked for up to fifteen seconds to give you or your team a chance to respond to a security problem.
