Customer Reviews

5/5 stars

I have nothing but good things to say about this company. I had a large hotel project that had everything from card reader locks to panic devices to lever lockset. Wholesalelocks furnished everything we needed. They worked closely with us to verify everything functioned together properly.

Here the six questions you need to ask as a starting point to choose the correct panic bar.

Panic bar door hardware covers a wide array of choices and can be confusing to determine which type is best for your application. We can help you find the right panic bar for the door you are trying to secure!

Talk to our experts at 1-800-508-6889 or 952-435-5003.

Is the door wood, steel or aluminum door with glass in it?

If it is a flat wood door with no glass or panels in the door, then a rim device panic bar will work. If there are panels or glass in the door, then you need to measure the stile to make sure you have enough room for a standard head type panic bar. If you have a narrow stile door with a mounting area less than 3 inches, then you need to choose a narrow stile panic bar. If there is any molding on the door that would prevent the panic bar from lying flat against the door, then you either need to notch the molding or use spacers to space the panic bar away from the door or use a crossbar type exit device.

Do you need a fire rated panic bar?

Non-fire rated panic bars are commonly acceptable for exterior doors on the building. For interior doors that lead to either a hallway, corridor or stairwell, commonly require a fire rated device that must positively latch all the time. Please keep in mind that the fire marshal within your local jurisdiction is the one that has the authority as to which panic bar you specifically must have on the door to meet code.

Is this a single or double door?

For single doors, a single point rim device that latches on the edge of the door frame is what is most commonly used. It is also possible to use a vertical rod panic bar device that latches at the top and the bottom. For high security applications, you can also use a three-point locking system that latches at the top and the bottom and the middle of the door.

For double doors it is best to use vertical rods to latch at the top and bottom of the door. You can use either concealed vertical rods or surface mounted vertical rods.

Do you want to have access to come through the door from the outside or do you just want this door to be used for exit only?

If you want to use the door for exit only, it is always best to use a blank outside plate with threaded posts or through bolts for a stronger installation. The plate will also commonly cover up an existing 2 1/8 inch diameter hole that is used for most cylindrical locksets.

You can also use a blank outside pull plate which can be used to open the door with no key override to work in conjunction with a non-fire rated panic bar with a dog down feature when it is in the dog down unlocked condition.

Night latch trim is a cylinder with a pull handle that allows access by key and automatically re-locks every time the door is closed.

Entrance function allows you to access by lever which is controlled by key to be in the locked or unlocked state.

Passage trim is commonly used on interior hallway doors that must remain latched but still allow access. Passage trim is always unlocked.

What size is the door?

It's critical to know the size of the door when ordering a panic bar. Standard door thickness is one and three-quarter inches thick. If you're door thickness exceeds this, then typically extensions may need to be ordered.

When ordering rim devices, panic bars are typically ordered to fit on 3 or 4 foot doors and can commonly be cut down up to 6 inches.

For doors that require vertical rod devices, you must know both the height and the width of the door.

For any nonstandard flat door, you need to verify the width of the stile to determine if you have enough mounting area for the panic bar.

How much traffic does this door receive?

Panic bars are graded and UL listed based on traffic volume as well as meeting fire code latching requirements. If the door has minimal traffic then a grade 2 device may be acceptable. For a high-traffic area, a grade 1 device is recommended. For extreme high-traffic areas like the mall or a school would require high quality panic bars like Von Duprin or Sargent. Cal Royal panic bars performed well in most grade 1 applications at a very competitive price.

  • Do you want to electronically control access with either electrified trim, electrified latch retraction or electrified strike?
  • Do you want the panic bar to work in conjunction with a power door operator or be controlled remotely?
  • Do you require an alarm to sound if the panic bars used?
  • Do you want a delayed egress feature to deter someone from exiting through the door?
  • Do you want to control the dog down feature with key cylinder?
  • Do you want to requested exit switch to tie into existing card access, fire alarm or monitoring application?


The following questions need to be answered in order to determine exactly what type of panic bar you need:
  • Is it a single or a double door?
  • What is the door made of? ie. wood, steel (hollow metal).
  • Is it an aluminum door with glass in it?
  • Is there any glass in the door?
  • What size is the door? The most common size door is 3 feet wide by 7 feet high. This is commonly referred to as a 3-0 x 7-0 door.
  • Where does the door open to?
  • Is it a labeled fire door? Typically a door that leads to the outside of a building is not labeled. If the door opens to an alley of some sort close to another building, the door may be a fire rated door, also known as a labeled door. If the door leads to an inside hallway or corridor it would require a fire rated device.
The final determination as to if you need a fire rated or non-fire rated panic bar is determined by your local fire marshal and building inspectors.

A fire rated exit device cannot be locked open at any time. It must always positively latch every time the door closes. The latch mechanism must also withstand higher temperatures that would occur during a fire and still remain latched. In order for a panic device to meet these standards it must be tested by Underwriters Laboratory in order to receive the UL listing.

A non-fire rated panic bar has what is known as a dog down feature. This allows the door to be put into an unlocked mode by depressing the device and retracting the latch. This is accomplished by inserting a special key (also known as a dog down key) and turning the key to secure the bar in an unlocked position. This allows the door to open by either pulling or pushing on the door without touching the panic bar. When the door needs to locked again, use the dog down key to release the bar and the door would then latch. When the bar is in this position, it would then be necessary to use a key on the outside of the door, or operate the bar on the inside.

Single doors use what is called a rim device which latches against the door frame approximately 40 inches up from the bottom of the door.

Single door applications can also be controlled from a remote location or card access system using a Hes 9600 Electric Strike with the proper power supply.

Double doors most often use what is called vertical rod exit bar. This provides latching at the top and bottom of the door. This allows each of the doors to work independently. When using a vertical rod device, either surface mounted vertical rods or concealed rods are available. If it is a new installation and the doors are not yet prepped, concealed rods can be used. If it is an existing door, surface mounted rods are more easily installed.

Wood and steel doors both use the same type of surface mounted lock hardware.

Aluminum doors with glass have different types of hardware and the specifications vary based on the width of the metal around the edge of the door. This is also known as the stile of the door.

Once you have determined what type of device you are going to install, some type of outside trim should be chosen to put on the door. A blank plate trim may be used if you only need to cover the existing holes in the door.

If access from the outside is needed, a pull with a cylinder to retract the latch can be used or a lever trim that can be locked or unlocked with a cylinder may be used.

All final code requirements are determined by your local building inspectors and fire marshal. The guidelines listed here are generalities; the final determination as to applicable codes is by the governing bodies in your location.
