Jack Aluminium Achieves PAS24:2022 Certification For New Panic Hardware On Its Emergency Exit Doors

by | May 21, 2024 | Aluminium

Following successful testing of a range of new panic hardware for its TD68 emergency exit doors, Jack Aluminium Systems has achieved PAS24:2022 certification.

Constantly looking to provide superior security to its customers, the latest PAS24:2022 assessment included the testing of the 485 touch bar panic unit; 585 push bar panic unit; 585 push pad emergency unit; and outside access device and security escutcheon. Both the 485 and 585 ranges of the Concealed Vertical Rod (CVR) panic hardware are specifically designed for use on aluminium doors, and are tested to BS EN 1125 and BS EN 179.

The 485 touch bar panic unit offers a sleek design and a low projection from the door face, making it suitable for use in sports halls, gymnasiums, hospitals and schools. Ideal for most applications and available in a single size that can be cut to suit a range of door dimensions, the 585 push panic bar and pad unit offers great flexibility, making it perfect for use in public buildings, leisure venues and shops, says the company.

For added protection, Jack Aluminium Systems’ double emergency exit doors are also now fitted with security escutcheons which have been designed to suite the internal hardware, where entry is provided by rotating the key to pull back the concealed shootbolts and gain entry.

Andy Short, Jack Aluminium’s managing director, says of the latest PAS24:2022 test: “We’re really pleased to have achieved PAS24:2022 certification for our double emergency exit doors, with the new panic hardware in place. Safety is of the upmost importance to us here at Jack Aluminium Systems, and we’ve been working hard to get the testing right, to make sure that the end user is safe and protected from potential harm.

“This latest industry accreditation is just another example of our dedication to providing our customers with the highest-quality products and services, in addition to our commitment to innovation and giving our customers a reliable and versatile product range.”
