Chicago Lock And Locks Panic Bar Fresh Installation Chicago, IL
What happens in crowded facilities when there’s an emergency? If a fire breaks out or if there’s an earthquake, you can hardly expect people to remain calm and composed and make an orderly exit out of the building. Such incidents incite people into the ‘flight or fight’ mode which can cause more casualties than the disaster itself, where people are stamped or asphyxiated to death during their mad rush for escape. With a string of such disasters making the news in the 19th and 20th century, emergency exits to facilitate easy escape were made mandatory by almost all regulatory authorities.

Why panic bars?
Of all the various measures deployed to facilitate exit from a building under stressful conditions, the use of panic bars is the most popular. This is a type of door opening mechanism where there’s a spring-loaded bar fixed onto the door. This allows the door to be opened by simply exerting substantial force on the bar. In an emergency, people would hardly be able to open bolted locks, find keys or maneuver through complex locking systems. The simplicity of the panic bar’s mechanism is what works during emergencies as the door could swing open easily even if the crowd throws itself on it.
