ABLOY Launches innovative Escape Door System

Security expert Abloy UK has launched an innovative Escape Door System (EDS) that offers easy access and egress while ensuring compliance, security and the ability to implement dynamic lockdown procedures.

With the EDS, it is now possible to provide a compliant solution for an escape door when read-in / read-out access control is specified, combining the three components required for BS EN 13637 (electronically controlled escape door systems for doors along escape routes).

The EDS offers Blocking, with a fail-unlocked locking element that does not require any mechanical input to operate, and intelligent Control that allows connection to fire alarm systems or other building control systems to ensure escape in an emergency.

In addition, the Trigger unit incorporates a key-switch and a push button that tells the controller to release the locking mechanism to allow safe escape. To be a valid BS EN 13637 solution, these three components must be tested together to ensure compliance and safety.

Abloy also understands the importance of being able to quickly restrict access in response to threats, which is why the EDS provides dynamic lockdown, allowing specific zones that may be at risk within a building to be cordoned off, while still allowing escape.

Models available include:

EDS 1386 No Delay Terminal – Surface Mounted Escape door 24 V DC.

EDS 1386 T1 Delay Terminal – Surface Mounted Escape door 24 V DC.

What’s more, Abloy offers free Academy courses – including the Foundations and Foundations Plus – to provide training of the highest standard on compliant locking solutions, with dedicated facilities for presentations and hands-on practical training.

Caroline Jones, OEM Product Manager at Abloy UK, said: “The importance of emergency escape systems is often underestimated because such events are relatively rare, but getting it wrong can lead to the loss of life, substantial fines and even custodial sentences.

“Security products and systems are always implemented to protect some form of asset, but at Abloy UK we firmly believe that the most valuable asset is life – which is why we offer products such as the EDS as well as pioneering education of life safety standards with our free Academy courses.”
