Abloy UK is committed to ensuring those responsible for specifying, installing and maintaining escape and fire doors are up to date on the relevant standards. Fitting the correct system can mean the difference between saving lives by allowing occupants to exit a building, or failing to do so.
There are a number of building regulation standards in place that relate to access control. Its essential that these are adhered to, in order to ensure safety and security. These include BS EN 179 Emergency Escape (for when the building occupants are aware of the building environment), BS EN 1125 Panic Escape (for environments used by the general public) and the new standard BS EN 13637 Electronically Controlled Escape Systems (for use on escape routes).
