ADA Door Top Latching Panic Device

The PL-100 top latching panic device is designed to meet ADA door regulations. Latching into the door’s header, our push pad allows wheel chair access by interfacing with a manual or electric strike at the top of the door.

Full length top and bottom rails are not required to secure our top latching panic device to the door. Using a minimal mounting plate as part of the interior crash bar, the PL-100 can be securely mounted on a minimum of ½” thick glass. Various fitting options are available for versatile panic device applications.

For secure 24/7 access, the PL-100 is equipped with a dogging feature. When activated, the latch retracts to an open position and the panic device allows free entries as a simple push-pull bar. When deactivated, this hardware returns to an emergency exit device, prohibiting exterior access at all times.
