Wall Clips Panic Breaks
Panic break or Push systems originating in early twentieth century. This was as the result of several serious, major fires in highly visited public entertainment venues such as theatres and galleries. The Home Office, in 1934, introduced the panic breaks to its “Manual of Safety Requirements in Theatres and Other Places of Public Entertainment” and these were based on the lessons from nine disasters at home and abroad. Panic Bars were applied to doors and windows of public places. Our Panic Breaks are specifically designed for use by members of the public who are unfamiliar with a building and who might panic if they suddenly have to evacuate the premises. Panic break products are very effective where large numbers of people are attempting to travel at speed to a fire exit as minimal pressure on the break ensures the rope barrier queue system opens allowing a rapid exit from it.
