Panic Device Hardware

PRL is the only manufacturer in the country that manufactures All Glass Entrance Systems with complete tubular panic device and hardware, in-house and ships to anywhere in the country. When we say “complete”, we mean glass, metal and panic device hardware. We fabricate the tempered glass, extrude and fabricate our own metal rails and frames, and manufacture our own UL certified tubular panic device for All Glass Entrance Doors.

We are the only entrance door supplier offering all of these from one source. Our Aluminum Storefront Division, PRL Aluminum, Inc. offers complete storefront and curtain wall systems including doors, sidelights and glazing, fabricated to your field dimensions. Our two divisions complement each other, making PRL the only true single source supplier of complete entrance systems and hardware. Because of our in-house capabilities we offer the fastest production time in the Industry. Why risk your project on a supplier who cannot control all aspects of your order?
