If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs,  you will have read about how panic bars were implemented as a means to improve commercial and public building safety. They allow easy access for those inside a building while also providing necessary security. With the implementation of commercial doors with panic bars, in the event of an emergency, there is less of a chance that occupants of the building will be trampled. Panic bars also allow for the implementation of alarm system installation; if someone enters or exits an unauthorized entrance, an alarm sounds.


Panic bars come as a main component of many types of commercial doors allowing you the variety you need to purchase a door that fits your needs. You can choose a door based on your security needs, budget, and building style. Three main types of commercial doors include:

  • Contemporary Touchbar – allows for the alarms and keycard admittance and fits a variety of building styles.

  • Economical Touchbar – the most basic panic bar that will fit building code and safety requirements.
