A panic exit device (also known as a panic bar , or push bar)
is a type of door opening mechanism which allows users to open a door by pushing a bar for quickly unlocking a door during a fire or an emergency situation.
Designed for life safety compliance, the mechanism consists of a spring-loaded metal bar fixed horizontally to the inside of an egress-opening door. When the lever is depressed, it activates a mechanism that unlatches the door. This actuation allows occupants to quickly exit from the building, avoiding delay and crowds, which are known to be highly hazardous in emergencies.
While originally conceived as a way to prevent crowd crushing in an emergency, crash bars are now used as the primary door opening mechanism in many commercial buildings.
Where are panic bars required?
According to all editions of the IBC starting with the 2006 edition. Panic hardware is required for doors serving three use groups:
1. Assembly occupancies with an occupant load of 50 people or more
2. Educational occupancies with an occupant load of 50 people or more
3. High hazard occupancies with any occupant load
