New panic exit devices

October 2013 Products

Ingersoll Rand has launched the CISA FAST devices which feature quicker and more user-friendly installation than previous models. It now takes half the time to install FAST panic exit devices than its previous models. This has been achieved thanks to CISA’s commitment to coming up with more functional solutions, principally mounting plates with a quick-lock system for additional locks; flexible steel cable to connect the central mechanism to additional locks; and clip-on cover without fixing screws for quick installation.

The new panic exit devices are interchangeable with the previous New Europa and Sblock versions: changing over from an earlier CISA model to one of the new FAST devices is quick, easy and does not require any action on the door.

CISA offers two types of panic exit devices, both with different structures and installation requirements: FAST Touch (the rim version) and FAST Push (the mortice version). The rim version is a complete system, designed for an installation, hence guaranteeing low-cost, quick fitting. The mortice version combines a panic exit device with a special panic function mortice-type lock. The result is a complete system delivering maximum anti-burglary security with a beautifully crisp and stylish design.

Commenting on the new product launch, Warren Purdue, managing director at D. Purdue & Sons said: “Servicing the products in the FAST device is also very easy, thanks to the new cover which has no fixing screws: in just a couple of seconds the cover can be disassembled to inspect the door fixings and carry out any lubrication necessary. Unscheduled maintenance is kept to a bare minimum.”

D. Purdue & Sons is an Ingersoll Rand distributor in South Africa.
