Top Latching Panic Device PL-100:

PRL’s PL-100 top latching panic device offers a petite, contemporary design that unobtrusively accents all glass and full framed emergency egress systems beautifully. With its latching mechanism concealed inside the interior push bar, the PL-100 provides a minimal, unhampered presence on entrance doors.

Fabricated in-house from stainless steel, this narrow, 1 ¼” diameter L-shaped panic device secures all glass and full framed panic doors with confidence and uncompromised style.

ADA Top Latching Panic Device Doors:

Designed to latch into the door header, the PL-100 top latching panic device is equipped with a top latching mechanism at the top of the door that interfaces with a manual or electric strike. This top latching design meets A.D.A. regulations.

Full length top and bottom rails are not required to secure the PL-100 panic device to the door. Using a minimal mounting plate as part of the tubular push bar, it 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, the panic device returns to an emergency exit device, prohibiting exterior access at all times.

PRL’s PL-100 top latching panic device 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.
