Innovation and Sustainability Showcased at ASIS

Securitron displayed several eco-friendly products at the show, while Adams Rite unveiled their new cutting-edge exit devices.

Adams Rite, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand, unveiled its new EX Series Exit Devices, showcasing advancements in mechanical to electrical upgrades, and providing a tech preview of the G100 Digital Glass Door Lock with wireless Aperio technology.

The new EX Series Exit Devices offer a sleek, flexible and installation-friendly solution featuring a universal hardware kit for aluminium, hollow metal, and wood applications and is available in three different lengths that can easily be cut in the field. Adams Rite, an ASSA ABLOY Group brand, unveiled its new EX Series Exit Devices.

The EX Series will launch with four models including the EX88 Interlocking Rim Exit Device, a robust and unique bolt design that interlocks the door to frame for enhanced strength and durability, the EX89 Pullman Rim Exit Device which is compatible with Adams Rite preload capable 74R2 Electric Strikes and surface mounted HES 9400 Series Electric Strikes, the EX76 CVR Exit Device with concealed adjustable rods and latching assemblies designed for easy installation, and the EX80 Series Dummy Push Bar whose flexible design comes standard with two monitoring switches and is field selectable for active or inactive configuration.

Adams Rite also showcased its Mechanical to Electrical upgrade path and products. End-users who are retrofitting an aluminium narrow stile installation are often looking to go from a completely mechanical lock to an electrified solution, which means products must be backward compatible. Adams Rite has long concentrated on designing latches and locks that are compatible with the Adams Rite MS Prep, saving time and money during upgrades. It also holds the aesthetics and integrity of an opening when upgrading to a new solution.
