Portland City Locksmith Push Bars Portland, OR
Modern commercial buildings are required by law to have safety exits. Further, these safety exits can’t be locked. After all, people are supposed to be using them during emergencies and nobody is going to have time to search for a key and then unlock the door, especially if the building is on fire. Push bars are an invention that allow emergency exit door to be opened quickly from the inside by a simple push on a bar (hence the name push bar). If you need new these exit locks installed for your property in the Portland, OR region, Portland City Locksmith is your best bet. We can get a new bar for you and install it in a short span of time, at an affordable price.
Are panic bars really secure?
Do push bars (also called panic bars) actually keep your door locked if they can be opened with a single push? The mechanism consists of a spring loaded bar that falls across the door and is activated when you push on it. However, you can only open it from one side – pulling from the other side of the door doesn’t work. That means if people try to pull on the emergency exit door when it’s closed from outside the building, it won’t open. What’s to stop someone from opening it from the inside and keeping it open? Modern versions have alarms that notify you when someone has used them.
