What is Panic Hardware?
Panic hardware, also known as exit devices or crash bars, is an important safety feature for buildings and public spaces. Panic hardware is designed to provide quick and easy egress in the event of an emergency, such as a fire or other life-threatening situation.
This type of hardware is also simply defined as a device that allows for Single Motion Exit.
Required By Law!
The importance of panic hardware lies in its ability to facilitate the rapid and safe evacuation of people from a building or space. Panic hardware is required by law in many jurisdictions, and failure to provide adequate panic hardware can result in fines or legal liability in the event of an emergency. Failure to comply with emergency egress code may also cause a building owner to fail safety inspection. Commercial buildings and multi family buildings are required to pass periodic safety inspections.
Panic hardware is designed to be easy to use and requires minimal force to operate, even by individuals with limited physical ability. This ensures that people can quickly exit a building or space without becoming trapped or impeded by locked doors or other barriers.
In addition to its importance in emergency situations, panic hardware can also provide added convenience and accessibility for people with disabilities or mobility impairments, allowing them to easily open doors without the need for assistance.
Overall, panic hardware is a critical safety feature that helps to ensure the protection and well-being of individuals in public spaces and buildings.
