Understanding EN179

EN179 is for emergency applications where the exit door is in a low occupancy environment and will only be used by trained personnel. An example would be an office or place of work which is never accessed by the public or other people unfamiliar with the building or escape drill. Products which are EN179 compliant should NEVER be used in a public area and require only a single point of operation such as a push pad or lever.
