ERVOS X61 EXIT DEVICE SERIES FAQ
Is any special machining
or other prep work required to install X61 Exit Devices in 161-machined
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.
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
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.
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
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?
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
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.
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
