Briton 560 / 570 Series Modular
Panic Exit Devices

Briton Exit Device

Briton Logo

A final exit door must be fitted with a securing device which enables the occupants of a building to open it without the use of a key from the escape side.

The Briton 560 and Briton 570 have been designed to offer modular panic exit devices for the mid to high end specification market offering a combination of safety and optimum security. Comprising of one-point locking pushbar or touchbar device and additional modular locking kits these units offer increased flexibility and adaptability to suit individual requirements.

Security

Designed to provide immediate escape at any time these devices also provide a high level of security from intruders from the outside. The anti-thrust device prevents unauthorised retraction of the latchbolts and the modular design allows various levels of multi-point locking.

Style

Unobtrusive projection and smooth flowing curves make both of these ranges of panic exit hardware ideal for any building where aesthetics are important.

Durability

The Briton 560 and 570 panic exit devices have been tested in excess of 200,000 cycles.

Guarantee

Both the Briton 560 and 570 series are supplied with a 5 year guarantee with free replacement of any unit proved defective by reason of faulty manufacture or defect in materials.

Briton 560  Exit Door

Modular

The Briton 560 and 570 series offers increased levels of flexibility with its modular design feature. For example, should the need arise for increased security upgrading a device is simple.

The one point locking device can be easily upgraded to two, three or even four point locking on a single door for maximum security.

In the same way, double door applications can be increased from three point locking up to six point locking.

The modular design feature means that there's no need to replace the whole device when upgrading, simply select the locking kit you require. (see page 11 of the brochure for the modular approach)

 
Briton 570 Pullman latch

Pullman Latches

The pullman latchbolts provide a smooth and quiet closing action. Ideal for interconnecting doors in highly populated areas.

Side acting pullmans are also available for applications where installation of the striker to the floor or threshold is not practical.

Easy to install

Both the Briton 560 and 570 are quick and easy to install whether it is the first installation or whether you are upgrading. Simple fixing instructions and templates and the easy fit backplate on the Briton 560, ensure that devices are fitted accurately, first time, every time.

Briton 376 Exit device

Fighting for your life...

An experience that far too many people have endured due to ignorance.

Even though the panic exit device was invented nearly 100 years ago and generally has been developed into what can only be described as a ‘life saver’ people are still fighting for and losing their lives in tragedies worldwide due to:

  • devices disabled with chains or wedges
  • incorrectly installed devices
  • poorly maintained products
  • doors fitted with products not fit for the purpose

Too many people have lost their lives because they didn’t have a choice

... But you do.

Exit devices save lives

When disaster strikes we only hear about the negative aspect such as the injuries sustained and the lives lost. Very rarely do we hear the positive side, such as the number of people who escaped and survived simply because the right product was fitted and more importantly that it worked when it really needed to.
