The possibility for a quick escape can save human lifes
People can react panic fueled because of crowds of people, fire or other emergencies. In these cases a simple and quick escape must be guaranteed. Some closed doors are insuperable barriers.
Several panic functions are available for mortise locks to match with the different situations. To explain you our solutions easily we have created the movie ECO Panic Functions.
ECO Panic Functions (E / D / B / C)
This video combines all 4 Panic Functions E, D, B und C. Following you will find the videos to every single Panic Function.
Panic Function E
Panic Function E is intended for buildings with access for a defined group of people. A blind plate or knob is mounted on the outside and the door can only be opened with a key. Conventional panic function per handle from the inside.
Area of application: heating room access doors, elevator systems, underground/ multi-storey carparks, storage and commercial buildings, entrance doors in rented apartment complexes and blocks of flats.
Panic Function D
Panic Function D is intended for doors with a pure escape function which are not used otherwise. When the conventional panic function is activated from the inside, the door is opened and the outer handle is engaged as well. In this setting, the door does not constitute an obstacle when entering the building or escaping from it. The original function can be reset with a key. The coupling is mechanical via a two-part hub.
Area of application: escape doors in administration/office buildings, retirement homes, side entrance doors (e.g. schools and hotels).
Panic Function B
Panic Function B with a handle on both sides is designed for buildings open to the general public. While the handle on the inside has a conventional panic function, the outside handle can be engaged or disengaged mechanically as required. The two handles are coupled via a two-part hub.
Area of application: escape doors in administration buildings, retirement homes, side entrance doors (e.g. schools and hotels).
Panic Function C
The Panic Function C with a handle on both sides is designed for buildings open to the general public: While the handle on the inside has a conventional panic function, the handle on the outside is disengaged as standard (idle function) and a key position (open position) must be used to engage and disengage it (forced closure). However, the key can only be removed after the idle function has been set again.
Fields of application: doors in administration or office buildings, retirement homes, side entrance doors (schools or hotels).
