Flexible OneSystem solutions with self-locking panic locks

Not all escape doors are the same. Depending on the specifications, the panic function has been implemented differently on escape routes. But if the facility's use changes, a complex conversion of the doors is required. The OneSystem locks from ASSA ABLOY Sicherheitstechnik GmbH show that there is an easier way. The self-locking panic locks complement the lock range usefully and can be easily replaced if requirements change.

ASSA ABLOY has expanded its flexible OneSystem product range for commercial and public buildings with self-locking panic locks. It is now possible to cover different locking functions within the building using the variable locking solutions. The new self-locking OneSystem panic locks are compatible with each other and can be used in single-leaf panic doors as well as in double-leaf full or partial panic doors. Depending on the requested panic function on the door, the mechanical lock can be replaced by its electromechanical version and vice versa without the milled cut-out for the lock case having to be changed.

Identical lock case dimensions for high flexibility

This great flexibility is based on the specially developed housings. In order to be able to use the system variably, ASSA ABLOY has designed the lock cases of the self-locking panic locks to be as similar as possible: The three variants - mechanical, with monitoring function or handle-controlled - each have identical outer dimensions. This means that the mortise locks can be exchanged with little effort and thus functionally adapted. All are available as single and multi-point locking systems for single-leaf and double-leaf narrow style doors. The self-locking function is realised with a latch bolt, which is pushed out to 20 mm after the door is closed and thus replaces the bolt. This ensures that the door is always correctly locked for insurance purposes. Dampening plastic inserts in the latch bolts increase acoustic comfort.

Each of the locks can be used DIN left and right. As it's standard with full leaf versions, a screw connection through the lock is also provided for the narrow style panic locks. Oval or round rosettes can thus be used and the control elements are solidly mounted due to the continuous screw connection. A continuous rotation angle of the handle follower of 35° for all elements simplifies the replacement of the locking devices - regardless of whether they are a door handle, panic push bar or panic touch bar.

For the self-locking panic locks, OneSystem offers the choice of backsets 30, 35, 40 and 45 mm as well as panic functions B, C and E. All panic locks are equipped with inwards and outwards reversible panic side and are certified according to EN179, EN 1125, EN 12209 and EN 14846.

Optional monitoring functions via Hi-O bus system

Anyone who wants to keep an overview of all escape doors in the building and thus increase security for residents and users, can use the panic locks with optional monitoring functions. Durable light barriers provide extensive control options inside these lock cases instead of microswitches. The monitoring lock is connected to an I/O module via a four-wire cable, where the requested functions can be easily selected. The solution communicates via the ASSA ABLOY Hi-O bus system.
