Exterior Panic System Handles

At PRL, we offer an endless selection of exterior panic system handles. Since exterior handles work independently from interior crash bars, and are not required to lock panic doors, specifiers and architects have the freedom to select any exterior handle for emergency egress systems. If the purpose of the door is to be an exit-only door, it can be fabricated without an exterior handle.
Exterior Panic Handles

Exterior Panic Handle Series

Otherwise known as dummy handles, our exterior panic handle series was designed to match our interior push pads. Constructed with the same 1 ¼” diameter tubing as our interior panic devices, our exterior handles provide classy, sleek uniformity for fire exit systems.

Available in an assortment of beautiful finishes in industry standard styles from A to Y, our most popular exterior panic handles are the A, D, F and FS styles.

A Style Exterior Panic Handle:
The A style exterior panic handle is a simple horizontal push bar. Constructed from 1 ¼” diameter tubing, the A style nicely complements our crash bar’s interior horizontal push bar.

D Style Exterior Panic Handle:
The D style exterior panic handle is an exact match to PRL’s interior push pads. A mirror image, it creates unison and a clean, unhindered, appearance with its 1 ¼” diameter tubing.

F Style Exterior Panic Handle:

The F style exterior panic handle was designed to accommodate larger doors up to 120″ in height. PRL is the only panic hardware manufacturer in the industry to offer tubular evacuation systems for doors up to 120″!

Sporting the same sleek design as our interior panic devices, the F style exterior handle is a 1 ¼” diameter full height tubular bar that runs in line from the top of the door to the bottom, with the interior crash bar’s vertical rod. This design supports the door, increases door strength, adds rigidity and reduces glass deflection*.

Important A.D.A. Note: The F style exterior panic handle is designed to run vertically down the door and latch at the bottom. This design does not comply with A.D.A. regulations unless the handle is held 10″ from the bottom of the door. Specifiers and architects are advised to consult with local and state building codes and regulations prior to ordering.

* When combined with the PL-100 panic device and ¾” tempered glass.

Larger Door Panic Handles

FS Style Exterior Panic Handle:

The FS style exterior panic handle meets handicap access codes and A.D.A regulations. An exact replica of the F style handle, this exterior panic handle is held 10″ from the bottom of the door to accommodate wheel chair access.
