Since a judgement was passed at the district court in Frankfurt, house doors are increasingly being fitted with anti-panic door locking systems. The court decided that locked doors in apartment buildings can pose a significant risk to inhabitants and their visitors in emergency situations (Frankfurt am Main District Court: 2-13 P 127/12).
For this reason, it must be ensured at all times that everyone inside can get outside - even without a key. Traditional anti-panic door locking systems for escape and emergency routes from the Winkhaus panikLock product range meet this specification. For apartment buildings with no explicit panic or escape door requirement, Winkhaus offers a further low-cost solution – autoLock AV3 OR.
The lock is also optionally available with a practical daytime latch function. For those who prefer the convenient electronic version, they will be best equipped with the motorised blueMatic EAV3 OR which can be controlled from the outside with fingerprint detection, remote control or other control options.
