Exit devices from Great Valley Lockshop offer a number of important benefits, as they are sturdy, convenient and secure. In the case of commercial emergency exits, they are required due to the fact that they allow for egress to occur hands-free and with minimal effort.
Also known as a crash bar door or panic bar door, these devices are designed for both convenience and safety, which is why you see them so frequently in many commercial locations, including:
- Movie theaters
- Township buildings
To be certified according to ANSI/BHMA 156.3 Grade 1 Standards, this type of exit door requires 500,000 cycles of 400 lbs. of opening pressure.
These exit devices function in the manner they are supposed to by keeping the door closed and locked from the point of ingress while still allowing for an easy exit from the point of egress.
Using these egress doors, it is possible to simply lean against the door with your hips to pass through the doorway, which is especially convenient for people who have their hands full or who may be weak or limited in their movement. If you have a need for both convenience and security, these devices are the ideal solution.

Panic/Crash Bar Door
That these exit devices are referred to as either panic bar doors or crash bar doors should indicate just how durable these doors are and the punishment they were designed to handle.
There is another reason, however, these doors are referred to in this manner, as they are designed to efficiently allow people to exit quickly and easily in the event of an emergency. This is also the reason why these doors must be inspected regularly to ensure that they are functioning properly in such an event. Let’s talk about your commercial project!
