Whether fire, earthquake or violent attack – there are situations where everyone simply has to get out of the building! As quickly and safely as possible. When panic breaks out, it is particularly important that the emergency exits and panic solutions on the doors and exits work correctly and can be operated intuitively even by people fleeing the building. Winkhaus offers an extensively tested range of products for just these emergencies, which can save lives in perilous situations.
The panicLock anti-panic locking systems according to DIN EN 179 and DIN EN 1125 fulfil all requirements for a quick opening function from the inside, yet still provide protection from the outside thanks to the sturdy hooks. Suitable for single sash doors and double sash doors made from aluminium, wood and PVC_U.
Multi-point locking systems for emergency doors can be opened in the direction of escape without a key even when locked. Against the direction of escape, the option for opening the door varies depending on the closing function.
The following are available in the Winkhaus range:
- Change-over function B
- Transit function D
- Switching function E
Furthermore, Winkhaus multi-point locking systems with panic function are suitable for single and double sash fire protection doors and are classified and labelled according to DIN EN 179/1125.
Important: When installing panicLock locking systems in doors, the correct combination of components tested in the system must be used – e.g. requirements on handle sets, profile cylinders etc.
