Detex Corporation of New Braunfels, Texas, is offering delayed egress hardware that withstands harsh weather. The hardware can be used on outside gates, as well as on interior doors that become wet when opened. Delayed egress hardware may be used in secured courtyards to prevent patients from wandering away. Locked from the outside, the devices allow egress in nonemergency situations after a 15-second delay; in an emergency they provide immediate exit. An alarm sounds at a monitoring station if someone attempts to leave. The hardware can be ordered as an Easy Kit, complete with everything needed for installation, including wiring. It is available with a stainless steel finish in the Advantex line.
