Fire Risks


In panic situations the safety and rescue possibilities for people in the building are the main concern.
Perimeter emergency exits must allow for free egress at all times. Yet, as exterior doors they also serve as critical points for maintaining building security.
Emergency exits must meet all building codes, as well as ADA and fire and life safety requirements.

Emergency exit door operational requirements are:

  • Door is normally locked
  • Access is gained by a valid credential
  • Free egress is available at all times

Within the meaning of these standards, emergency exit door systems are subdivided in emergency exit devices according to EN 179, and panic door Exit devices according to EN 1125. Emergency exits acc. to EN 179 are designated to buildings to which the general public does not have access and whose visitors understand the function of the emergency doors. Panic door exit devices acc. to EN 1125 are used in public buildings where the visitors are not familiar with the function of emergency doors, like schools, hospitals, shopping malls. The MEK door systems offer a comprehensive range of applications, which can also be combined with other functions and design options.

GENERAL OSHA GUIDELINES FOR EMERGENCY EXITS:

OSHA defines an exit route as “a continuous, unobstructed path from anywhere in a work area to the exit.” A workplace must have two or more exit routes, depending on the number of people involved and the layout and size of the work area.
