It’s a Knockout for Union’s Competitor
UNION’s panic bolt was put head to head against a Briton equivalent and has proven to be the champion of quick and simple installation. UNION’s Eximo® 801 Panic Bolt was pit against the competitor product with the installation process being timed in a controlled environment, on identical doors, and fitted by the same installer, to see which product proved to be the easiest to install.
The UNION Eximo device installation took 34 minutes with the competitor product taking 66 minutes, revealing the time and effort that installers can save by using the Eximo® range.
The Eximo® range is designed to be easy to install, use and adjust. With all Eximo® products also being fully retro-fittable with the market’s popular products – the range is a great advantage when working on refurbishment projects.
Ian Barlett, Head of Product Management at ASSA ABLOY, said: “The Eximo® range has a number of features and benefits that help installers to save time. For instance any fine-tuning to adjust the unit can be done centrally, rather than at the top of the door, making the assembly quick and simple, so installers can move on to their next jobs quicker.
“UNION’s Eximo® device took almost half the time of the competitor product to install, so two 801 Panic Bolts could be fitted in the same time it would take to fit one competitor product!”
All products within the Eximo® panic exit range are suitable for use on exit doors within public buildings where in a crisis, the exit route is unfamiliar, in accordance to BS EN 1125, making them ideal for applications such as hospitals, schools and leisure facilities.
Conversely, the products available under the emergency exit range are designed for use in buildings, where users are familiar with the exit routes and procedures in accordance to BS EN 179 – making them a crucial feature in offices and commercial developments.
UNION’s Eximo® range is guaranteed for ten years, Certifre approved and CE marked.
