Quality and Price Aspects of Exit Devices

Any discussion on quality of exit devices and exit alarms naturally revolves around the intended use. In a way, it is related to incidents that are likely happen in certain areas. One has to foresee the possibility of crowd surge in an auditorium; and put in place $450 alarmed panic exit devices. For a small office, perhaps a $100 knob trim lock is sufficient. In a hospital like situation, you would be thinking of exit devices convenient and safe for patients.

New types of exit door alarms and devises keep hitting the market; there is a wide choice to fit the purpose exactly.

Alarmed Exit Devices:

Primary and secondary gates require emergency exits, so that people can leave quickly if there is a panic, but at the same time, you need to prevent unauthorized exit. Devises armed with exit door alarms meet this need. The devise has an electronic sensing system to monitor the latch bolt, which sets off an alarm, if someone tries to sneak out. It opens only from inside and does not allow operation from outside. Running on batteries, these devices are effective, even when the regular power supply fails (which, is likely in emergencies.) Another option is ‘electric strike’ exit door alarm that allows both remote and manual operation; some types of exit door alarms can be coupled to computerized security systems too.

  • Fire Rated Exit Latches: Fire rated exit devises are recommended for storerooms, particularly if volatile substances or expensive items are stored. From insurance point of view, it is essential to fit ANSI standard fire rated exit devises for such storage spaces. Depending on the stored material, you may have to choose different grade exit door alarms and latches.
  • Frequent Use Exit Devices: You may not need such high-end exit alarms all the time; for places where people keep moving out often, simpler arrangements are more convenient. Say for schools, offices, hotels and conference halls, frequent use exit devises in attractive designs, comfortable to use and durable start from around $100 and some are less expensive too.
  • Best Places to buy: Nationally well known, trusted brands of exit devises sell for lower prices at online stores. The difference between the local hardware store and the E-commerce supplier may workout to as much as 20 to 30% on some locks and door hardware. Online stores buy and sell across the country, their volumes are high; and this enables them to offer attractive prices. In fact, often, these stores stock wider range and latest models and a whole range of door hardware.
