Installation

Is any special machining or other prep work required to install X61 Exit Devices in 161-machined doors?
No.

How long does it take to install the X61?
Depending on the type of device, installation generally takes between 5 and 18 minutes.

Can the same device be used for left or right-handed doors?
Yes, the X61 is reversible without changing parts.

 

Safety

Does the X61 comply with ADA standards?
Yes, it's fully ADA compliant and easily operable by children or persons with disabilities.

Why a pull handle?
First, the X61's pull handle configuration makes it very ADA friendly because there is no wrist twisting or flexing. Second, the one-motion pull handle is the fastest and easiest method for gaining entry. Third, from a security standpoint, torque problems are largely eliminated because the handle fastens top and bottom to the pinion mechanism. And finally, from a maintenance perspective, changing parts is not necessary when changing handles.

Does the X61 have a fire rating?
Yes, please click here to view our Fire Label Rating Chart.

 

Security

Is the latchbolt a standard type?
No. Unlike standard latchbolts, the tail pieces of the X61's 15/16" latchbolt extends substantially into the latch tube even when the end of the latch is protracted into the strike. This provides for a very robust latchbolt assembly.

How sturdy is the touchbar assembly?
A 12-gauge steel channel connects the active case chassis with the end cap substructure. The touchbar assembly easily passes the UL's 400-pound pressure test. Further, for use in abusive environments, the tension support plate T-01 will give the touchbar assembly additional rigidity.

How much force on a locked handle is required before it releases?
About 150 ft/lbs.

Will the device remained locked if the outside handle is forced?
Absolutely.

How difficult is it to replace damaged cams?
It should only take 5 to 8 minutes. First, remove the active case and trim covers. Then replace cams and reset the handle. Finally, reattach the covers. All work can be done with two sizes of allen wrenches.

 

Maintenance Issues

Does the X61 come with a warranty? If so, how long is it?
Yes. Three years.

Can it withstand damage by carts and other heavy objects?
Yes. The X61's design is very robust and is based on research feedback from architects, distributors and end users about this specific abusive environment issue. The X61 uses the sturdiest end caps ever designed. Double post studs plus screws secure the heavy-formed end cap to the end cap substructure. The 1 1/4" very low profile active case cover is cast and beveled to deflect carts and other abusive objects.

The vertical rods are protected by top and bottom double-beveled, extruded covers projecting 17/32" from the door surface. There is no projecting bottom case -- just the bottom bolt within the rod protector itself.

 

Aesthetics

How far does the device project from the door?
Extended = 2 27/32" Depressed = 2 3/16"

What does "low profile active case" mean?
The active case projects a mere 1 1/4" from the door surface.

Does the X61 come in painted finishes?
No. It comes in architectural finishes and in custom automotive-grade colors.
