Briton 378 Single Door Rim Panic Latch | Silver | EN1125

The Briton 378 R SE rim panic latch is suitable for both left and right handed doors in public areas. Suits exit doors up to 1300mm wide.

 

Briton 378 R SE Horizontal Push Bar

The Briton 378 R SE reversible rim panic latch is a CE Marked, 1 point locking device suitable for single left or right handed doors. This exit device is for installation on fire and smoke doors up to 2500mm high and 1300mm wide in public areas such as schools, hospitals, and entertainment venues.

The Briton 378 is tested to meet EN 1125 making it ideal for use in areas where door users may not be familiar with the building's escape routes and exit devices in the event of an emergency. Approved Document B recommends that panic exit devices, such as a push bar or crash bar, are used in areas with 60+ occupants, irrespective of the training of the users.

  • Horizontal push bar operation
  • Single point locking rim latch
  • Anti-thrust device prevents unauthorised retraction of the latch bolt
  • Reversible on site
  • Sprayed silver finish

  • Maximum door leaf width: 1300mm

This panic exit hardware is supplied with fixings and self-adhesive 'Push Bar To Open' sign. This unit is site reversible and the push bar can be cut on site to suit the width of the door. The recommended installation height for this push bar panic latch is 1000mm +/- 100mm from the finished floor level.

The 378 can be fitted to double doors when used in combination with the Briton 376 panic bolt and 378DD double door strike. They can be purchased together as the 377 double panic bolt set. The 378 panic latch is installed to the first opening leaf on the rebated pair of doors, with the Briton 376 panic bolt securing the second opening leaf with two point locking vertical panic bolts.

Briton 378 Push Bar Panic Exit Hardware Instructions

In the Product Manuals section, you can view or download various documents for this panic latch. These include the installation instructions, Declaration of Performance (DOP), plus the CE, Certifire, and UKCA certificates for the 378.

The manufacturer recommends a minimum of a monthly check of fire exit doors with their panic hardware installed. This will ensure that the exit devices are fully functional and allow for safe and effective single action egress at all times.

One example of a suggested check is to make sure that the latch bolt fully retracts when the push bar is engaged. No weather strips or seals should hinder the full opening of the door. This unit has a 5 year manufacturer guarantee and more details of the maintenance and checks can be found on the product data sheet.

Briton 376 Series Exit Hardware

As part of the Briton 376 range, you can purchase push pad emergency exit devices to EN 179, for use in areas not used by the public. Users need to be familiar with the emergency exits and have been trained on how to use the exit devices. The Briton 1438 push pad is single point locking, whilst the Briton 372 push pad has vertical panic bolts for two point locking. If in any doubt, always install panic hardware that is certified to EN 1125.

Outside access devices (OADs) are available with knob or lever operation, to provde authorised external access to final exit doors fitted with panic or emergency exit hardware. Ensure the brand and range of OAD are compatible with the exit door hardware and that they have been tested together. The Briton 1413E, lever or knob version, is approved for use in conjunction with the 378 push bar, as is the Briton 9260 digital lock outside access device.

The Briton 378 R SE rim panic latch is quick and easy to install. If additional security is required, thBriton 379 N SE has a dual profile mortice nightlatch case which suits either a euro profile or oval profile cylinder. The cylinder barrels are sold separately so make sure to add one to the basket before checking out. 

You can purchase the Briton 378 in various PVD plated finishes as a special order, including stainless steel and polished brass, plus the 378M variant for use on metal doors. There is also a selection of spares and accessories available for the 376 range hardware so contact our technical sales team today for more information.
