Sentry Safety 1200UL Series UL Listed Vertical Rod Two Point Latch Rim Exit Device


This model is universal and can be used left or right handed.

The 1200UL Series by Sentry Safety is surface mounted. The panic bar will be placed on the rear face of the door. The rods lead to latches at the top and bottom of the door. On the top will be a surface strike, and on the bottom of the door a floor keeper that will allow a drop pin to go into the floor through a hole in the center of the floor keeper. The strike goes on the door frame behind the door, not on the inside of the frame where you may have previously had a handle. If the door has a handle that will need to be removed. Caps are available for the hole left behind after the handle is removed. Door jamb brackets are also available to cover where the old handle latched to the frame. Mounting bolts are provided however depending on the material of the door you may switch to the same diameter in wood screws, self-tapping metal screws, or for added strength - sex bolts. (Sex bolts have a female side on the outside of the door and a male side on the inside of the door and then they join in the middle of the door. Since both faces of the door are used for securing the bar it makes for a secure hold.)
