This is a single door, push type panic exit crash bar.

The 500 Series panic exit bar by Sentry Safety is durable and reliable. This panic bar comes with an 11/16" deadlocking bolt to create a secure connection between the door and exit device, ensuring that the panic bar will function properly for use after use. Also, the 500 series is equipped with dogging, which can be set to keep the panic bar unlocked by fastening the crossbar in the depressed position and keeping the bolts in a retracted position. This means that the door can be opened from either side, and eliminating the necessity of engaging the internal mechanisms for every use reduces the strain on the device's springs and mechanisms. Therefore, the 500 Series by Sentry Safety is perfect for medium to high usage areas.

The 500 Series by Sentry Safety gives the consumer choices in appearance and installation, as well. It is available with a painted (500-P) or stainless steel (500-S) finish, and can be installed on either left-handed or right-handed wood or hollow metal doors that are 1 3/4" (44mm) thick. Additionally, the cylinder lock permits the user to install the appropriate accessories so the door can be opened from the outside. The cylinder lock connects to the internal mechanisms of the push bar by way of a 2 3/4" hole in the door.

*Dogging - a feature that locks the bar in a depressed position so that the door can be opened from either side, and eliminates the necessity of engaging the internal mechanisms. Allen Key dogging is engaged with an allen wrench, while knob dogging is engaged by a knob built into the bar.
*Semi-length - the push/press part of the bar only extends for part of the full length of the bar.
*Full-length - the push/press part of the bar is the full length of the bar.
*ANSI/BHMA Grade Standards - the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA) is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to determine criteria for the performance and safety of certain products, such as panic exit devices.
*Mag Lock - an electromagnetic locking device.
*Strike - the component of the panic bar that goes on the door jamb; the locking mechanism engages this part to shut the door.
*Single Door Application - the bar is designed for a single door set up; however, most bars are compatible with the appropriate dual door model so that one door will have a panic exit bar with vertical rods, and the other will be a panic exit bar for single door applications.
