Phoenix — Oct. 30, 2014 — Adams Rite, an ASSA ABLOY Group company, has launched the newest addition to the RITE Door family of hardware, the D3940 Series dual levers.
The Adams Rite D3940 Series dual levers on either side of The TRUE Wood RITE Door activate the top latching mechanism, allowing each leaf to operate independently and eliminating the need for floor strikes, center latches, flush bolts, astragals, or coordinators.
All pre-installed lever x lever hardware features the free-wheeling lever mechanism. This means that when the outside lever is locked, it will rotate freely up and down while remaining securely locked. It is also available electrified for access control.
The D3976 fire-rated inset concealed vertical rod exit device, launched in May, ensures clear opening, code compliance, and a clean look. The RITE Door from Adams Rite is an integrated commercial door system that meets all fire and safety regulations, is easy to install, and enhances your design.
“Custom is king. Just as we’ve made the RITE Door and TRUE Wood to be incredibly customizable to fit your installation needs, we’ve also expanded our exit device offering to both inset and dual lever hardware,” said Curt Hubacher, contract hardware channel manager,EMS & OEM Group, ASSA ABLOY. “Dual levers are ideal for educational facilities, hospitality, hospitals, and commercial applications. The series is available in three designs and multiple color options, to yet again ensure the perfect match for your facility.”
The new TRUE Wood RITE door is available in several types; the GPD-EC 5-Ply engineered composite lumber core for Non Rated and 20 minute rating, and the GPD-FD 5-Ply fire core with fire ratings ranging from 45 to 90 minutes.
A variety of product options are also available including silent electrification (SE) motorized latch retraction, request to exit (REX) monitoring/signal switches, and electric dogging. All of the TRUE Wood doors are available in a wide variety of vertical and horizontal grain patterns and may contribute to the following four LEED 3.0 credits: MR4, MR5, MR7 and IEQ 4.4. The RITE Door has been awarded GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification.
