UNION launches new panic and emergency exit device range


Eximo range is suitable for use on both timber and steel doors

UNION, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, has consolidated and developed its panic and emergency exit device offering, launching a new suited range ideal for a variety of project specifications.

The Eximo range – suitable for use on both timber and steel doors – has been launched as part of the larger ‘We are UNION’ campaign, to strengthen and broaden the brand’s offering.

Featuring eight new products, UNION’s latest offering includes panic latches and bolts, emergency push pads, mortice-operated exit devices featuring UNION’s Optimus mortice lock cases, and outside access products with lever and knob variants.

All products within the Eximo panic exit suite are suitable for use on exit doors and routes within public buildings where, in a crisis, the exit route is unfamiliar, making them ideal for applications such as hospitals.

Designed to be easy to install, use and adjust, all Eximo products are also fully retro-fittable with the market’s most-popular products – an advantage when working on refurbishment projects.

All products within the range also come with a 10-year guarantee and are non-handed to provide a flexible solution. Plus, with an enhanced finish and adjustments made to improve performance over time, the panic and emergency exit device ranges offer superior quality at a competitive price point.

Ian Bartlett, head of product management for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “In addition to complementing UNION’s mortice campaign, which is all about reinforcing our place as market leaders, the Eximo range is also designed to provide a solution for all specifications.

“Following customer feedback we’ve ensured that all products within the new range are easy to use and install, helping to save time on site and ensuring optimum functionality. In addition, the comprehensive range is easy to understand, aiding the specification process.”
