Dorma unveils new safe exit device
Dubai, March 19, 2012
Leading access solutions and services company, Dorma, has unveiled a new exit device to be used in fire escape doors, which will safeguard residents living in buildings.
The new 9000 series Narrow Stile devices will satisfy the demand for aesthetic and reliable safe egress solutions with the highest level of security, it said
The company's 9700 series devices are an industry first, by testing the product to a dizzy 15 million cycles, way beyond the industry minimum of 500,000 cycles as required by ANSI/BHMA 156.3 for grade one devices, the company said.
The 15 million cycles have been verified by an independent, globally recognised third party laboratory.
Most victims found dead in the recent fire incidents were due to the fire escape door failing to open as the exit device used in the door didn’t function, the statement said.
It is the only device which can be used for all door configurations including narrow, medium or wide stile, flush, full glass, hollow metal, wood or composite, it said.
The elegant aesthetics of the narrow stile by Dorma removes barriers for adoption by designers, due to big and bulky looks with which exit devices have been associated for years, it said. Apart from the device being narrow, the stile is also unique of being available in the market in the premium category with true stainless steel touch bar and assembly.
The devices have a full length touch bar which makes it easier for the user to release the latches or bolts of the exit device compared to a partial touch bar. The devices have both ANSI and EN standards – good for the Middle East construction industry where both standards are equally popular.
It is also the first device to be listed in the 'Future Build' portal of Masdar, becoming the product of choice for sustainable projects.
Furthermore, an antimicrobial coating option of the device is available for ultra clean environments like hospitals. – TradeArabia News Service
