These requirements cover releasing devices, such as panic
hardware, fire exit hardware and exit locks, that are actuated by
an actuating bar (crossbar or push pad) or actuating paddle for
outward-opening doors, designed to facilitate the egress of persons
from buildings in the event of panic or other emergency.
These requirements do not pertain to the fire-retardant
classification of a door and releasing-device assembly.
A product that contains features, characteristics, components,
materials, or systems new or different from those covered by the
requirements in this standard, and that involves a risk of fire or
of electric shock or injury to persons shall be evaluated using
appropriate additional component and end-product requirements to
maintain the level of safety as originally anticipated by the
intent of this standard. A product whose features, characteristics,
components, materials, or systems conflict with specific
requirements or provisions of this standard does not comply with
this standard. Revision of requirements shall be proposed and
adopted in conformance with the methods employed for development,
revision, and implementation of this standard.
Fire Exit Hardware shall additionally be evaluated to the
Standard for Safety for Positive Pressure Fire Tests of Door
Assemblies, UL 10C.
