Introduces the Paneline ® EL Exit Device
Kawneer Company Inc., a manufacturer of architectural aluminum
products and systems for commercial construction, has introduced
the Paneline® EL (Electric Latch) Exit Device.
Paneline® EL incorporates the added security of controlled user
access with Kawneer's popular Paneline® design, which attractively
integrates a concealed exit device, door cross rail and full width
for new applications or as a retrofit to existing Paneline®
doors (manufactured after 1989), Kawneer touts the EL device as
ideal for use in commercial buildings, especially offices, or anywhere
that security is a top priority. The company also says the narrow
lines of the Paneline® EL blend well with a wide range of entrance
structures and architectural styles. The actuating panel recesses
into the cross rail of the door when in the open position, simulating
the appearance of a streamlined push plate. In the latched position,
the panel protrudes only 1-1/8 inches from the door - when manually
operated the pad retracts to approximately a 1/4" projection.
The Paneline® EL can operate as a stand-alone system, or can
be integrated into a building access control system. It is compatible
with a broad selection of devices, including keypads, card readers
and biometric scanners, to offer total access control, down to the
hour of the day that individuals are allowed or denied access. An
optional backup battery system provides controlled access and egress
are functional at all times, even during power losses.
Paneline® EL is available on Kawneer's 190 Narrow Stile, 350
Medium Stile, 500 Wide Stile, 350 Heavy Wall, Tuffline®
and Flushline® Entrances. The power transfer option includes
either an Electric Power Transfer (EPT) device, EL butt hinge or
EL offset pivot. Paneline® EL is listed with Underwriters Laboratory
(UL) for certified performance and is backed by the standard Kawneer
two-year warranty. The push panel and CPN style pull are available
in clear, black or dark bronze anodize finishes. The push panel
inlay strip is black with clear letters on clear finish doors and
light bronze with black letters on black or dark bronze finish doors.
