How Can PRL Accommodate Large Glass Panic Device Doors? Find Out!
Our PL-100F tubular panic hardware is the answer! Specifiers and architects don’t need to look any further. At PRL, our PL-100F tubular panic hardware can accommodate large glass panic device doors up to 120″ tall! As the only panic hardware manufacturer in the industry to offer tubular panic systems for glass doors of this size, PRL of Southern California has you covered.
Innovative PL-100F Tubular Panic Hardware
To meet the growing demand for large glass panic device doors, PRL’s innovative PL-100F tubular panic hardware was born. Utilizing a combination of the PL-100 panic device, our F style exterior panic handle and 3/4″ tempered glass doors, PRL provides strong, secure egress doors that create stunning architectural designs for fire exits.
Larger & Stronger!
Sporting the same sleek design as our PL-100 panic device, the F style exterior handle is a 1 1/4″ diameter full height tubular bar that runs in line from the top of the door to the bottom, with the interior exit device’s vertical rod. This design supports larger glass doors, increases door strength, adds rigidity and reduces glass deflection. To compensate for the panic device’s height on taller doors, PRL’s implemented stronger design methods.
Is Your Panic Hardware UL Certified?
Yes. PRL’s panic hardware has been tested up to 2 million cycles in accordance to the American National Standard safety for panic devices (UL305), American Standard Institute (ANSI) and Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association, Inc. (BHMA) A 156.3-2008, Grade 1 certified.
Is Your PL-100F Tubular Panic Hardware A.D.A Compliant?
No. The F style exterior handle latches at the bottom of the door. This design does not comply with A.D.A. regulations since it doesn’t accommodate wheelchair access. For this reason specifiers and architects are advised to consult with local and state building codes and regulations prior to ordering. However, PRL’s L style exterior panic handle is A.D.A. compliant.
In addition to tubular panic hardware, PRL offers a large selection of products to create beautiful, complete, panic systems. Extending a wide selection of all glass and full framed panic doors, glass types, door rails and patch fittings, and exterior panic handles, we provide premium quality products you can rely on.
