NEW HAVEN, CT, March, 2011 - SARGENT Manufacturing Company, a market leader in locksets, cylinders, door closers, and related products, and ASSA ABLOY Group company, announces that its Harmony Series H1 exit devices are now available with 56- electric latch retraction.
Offered in ET trim as well as a variety of pull trims, 56- electric latch retraction ensures fast, quiet operation. Ideal for high-traffic egress doors, these exit devices are ideal for offices, conference rooms, convention halls, theaters, libraries and healthcare facilities.
The new offering combines the exceptional security and aesthetics of Harmony Series access control with the ease and durability of 56- electric latch retraction. The electrified latch is retracted for controlled access when a valid credential is presented to the integrated reader. The latch can also be electrically dogged for continuous push/pull operation.
Harmony H1 exit devices support HID 125 kHz proximity credentials and are available in 8900 Mortise, 8800 Rim, 8700 Surface Vertical rod (SVR), and 8600 Concealed Vertical Rod (CVR) exit device configurations. With all components consolidated into the lock, installation time is reduced significantly compared to traditional access control installations.
