Alarm Panic Device Guide

Alarmed panic devices sound an alarm when the device is operated. Panic Devices with Alarms are most often push bar type exit devices because there is more room for the circuitry.

When to use an Alarm Panic Device:

  • On fire exits.
  • To discourage the unauthorized use of emergency exit doors.
  • On doors where security is a concern such as those leading to rooftops or dangerous maintenance rooms.
  • On side doors leading to the outside of retail buildings.

If your application demands an exit device with an alarm, here are some features to consider:

  • How the alarm is triggered. For most alarm exit devices, the alarm will go off as soon as the push bar is pressed; however, they allow entry from the outside without the alarm sounding.
  • How the alarm is powered. Some versions are wired, but most alarm rim exit devices are battery powered.
  • Can the alarm be disabled? Many models include a key mortise lock to activate or inactivate the alarm.
  • Adjustable alarm time. Many alarm panic devices have field adjustable alarm sound duration and rearm times.
