This revolutionary patent-pending concealed vertical cable (CVC) system uses proven cable technology in a whole new way. Giving doors that require a vertical exit device the same strength and security in a system that’s easy to install and maintain. Concealed in the door, the cables and components are protected from use and abuse and provide improved aesthetics.

A concealed vertical exit device is the ideal solution for openings requiring enhanced security and streamlined aesthetics – no surface-mounted rods, mullions, or metal wraps are visible.

What makes the Von Duprin concealed vertical cable solutions truly unique is their ability to perform in less than ideal conditions. The flexibility and slack in the cable system allow the device to function properly even if the top latch, device centerline, and bottom latch are not vertically aligned. The concealed vertical system is not as sensitive to changing door conditions and requires significantly less maintenance than a traditional rod over its lifetime. If a simple repair or modification is required, the cable system and latches can be removed and reinstalled by one person without removing the door from the frame.
