Detex Corporation’s Delayed Egress with latch retraction device is designed for applications such as healthcare facilities, where security is a high priority for the protection of patients and employees. The device has no external magnets, electric strikes or electric trims. Everything is contained in the rim device, so there are fewer components to install and fewer to malfunction and affect performance. For authorized personnel, the latch retraction operates with the access control system, bypassing delayed egress to allow exit and entry without sounding the alarm. Unauthorized entry triggers a 100dB alarm and keeps the door locked for 15 seconds to allow staff time to respond. A fire alarm input provides life safety override for immediate exit during a fire emergency.
