The Importance of Panic Bars And Crash Bars For Commercial Business Safety
When it comes to commercial buildings, almost all of them are required to have crash bars which are also known as panic bars on their emergency doors. This requirement is part of most commercial building codes. The crash bars or push bars are the most popular type of door locks since they have multiple different types of benefits. Once the individual depresses the bar on the door this activates the unlatching mechanism of the door and allows a smooth easy exit. Push bars have been the reason why the casualties in random incidents, such as stampedes, have decreased tremendously.
The Benefits Of Push Bars On Emergency Exit Doors
The way that push bars increase commercial building security is that the doors are designed so that they aren’t accessed from the exit side of the door. Because of this security feature that push bars offer, businesses can we receive insurance discounts for having them installed. Did we mention that they’re also very affordable and they are catered to fit the needs of each individual building?
The push bar also varies when it comes to the style so a facility can get the exact push bar that matches their measurements when it comes to vertical or horizontal designs.
