59- Self Contained Delayed Egress Device
Commonly used in schools, nursing homes, shopping centers and libraries, delayed egress exit devices provide a means of monitoring egress to prevent unauthorized exit. When the exit device push pad is depressed, the 59-80 Series delayed egress exit device sounds an alarm from the rail to alert personnel that someone is attempting egress. The exit device stays secure for fifteen seconds, allowing time for personnel to respond. Momentary release for egress (adjustable for 5, 10, 20 or 40 seconds) is provided by a cylinder on the rail or from a remote location. When the fire alarm system is activated (if connected), the exit device disarms and allows immediate egress.
Note: As of February 2014, the 59- option has a new design. The updated 59- functionalities utilize new sensor technologies and is only available for order as a complete device. Component upgrades are not offered with prior generation products because wire harnesses are not backwards compatible. When replacing an existing device with an updated one, there is no change to door templating or mounting
