The key factor for the inclusion of the UNIVERSAL was the quick, easy installation it offers. Although the main central mechanisms are slim enough to install on narrow profiles, they have a large depth of 208mm giving easy access to fixing points.
- Easy fixing point access also applies to the Pullman latches.
- Vertical rods are just simply cut to size, with a large 40mm tolerance, and then held by grub screw in a collar. No e clips necessary.
- The cross bar is easily cut to size and held within the main central mechanisms by grub screw. No plugs required.
The above points, and more, lead to an extremely simple installation.
The UNIVERSAL is a single boxed product meaning all components; mechanisms, cross bar, rods, pullman latches and fixings are in one box, which is great from an installation perspective. The central mechanisms are reversible as standard and are available with micro switch. Pullman latches can be supplied vertical or horizontal, with two and three point locking options available. The range conforms to the European standard EN 1125:2008 on panic exit devices, is CE marked, and is suitable for use on fire rated doors. The standard finish is black, but other finishes are available to special order.
Outside access is provided by the Modular handle, which is available with either a lever handle or round knob for operation. Both options are supplied complete with a 40mm long euro-profile standard differ single cylinder and suit up to 60mm thick doors. Modular handles can be supplied keyed alike or master keyed to special order. The Modular handle also has ‘Captive Key’ function, which when engaged means the unit must be locked to remove the key.
The UNIVERSAL is suitable for use on mid-rails of doors made of steel, timber, aluminium and PVCu and due to the depth of the mechanism they are ideal for the retrofit market and for replacing other makes of surface fixed panic bolt.
