The striking addition to popular Blumcraft Panic Devices accommodates up to 12-foot glass doors.

C.R. Laurence (CRL), the leading full-service provider of architectural metals, glass fittings and professional-grade glazing supplies, builds on its existing Blumcraft PA100 Panic Device with a monumental capability to suit 12-foot-high glass doors and produce a minimal, refined visual.

The new panic system capability represents advanced design and engineering, creating an awe-inspiring glass entrance with an ultra-narrow, 1-1/4" diameter tube. The Blumcraft PA100 Panic Device for 12-foot doors has been rigorously tested to 500,000 cycles without failure to achieve ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 rating. In addition, despite a remarkable scale, the device’s actuating crossbar only requires six pounds of push force to retract the top latch. 

Key features include: 

  • UL 305 and ANSI/BHMA approved
  • Maximum panic device height: 105” (2.6 m)
  • Can be specified for 10-, 11-, or 12-foot doors
  • Improved tolerances and internal mechanism components
  • Fabricated using advanced CNC machining and finishing equipment
  • Standard finishes, including matte black, brushed stainless, polished stainless, stain brass, polished brash and oil rubbed bronze
  • For use with 13/16” laminated glass
