Quiet electric latch retraction (QEL) provides electronic control of an exit device for environments where limited operational noise is desired. The QEL option is Von Duprin’s solution of choice for hospitals, libraries, museums and theaters where ambient noise can be disruptive.

These devices always provide mechanical egress. The electrified latch retraction can also be activated by an access system or building automation system to unlatch the exit device momentarily. Often the QEL is used with a credential reader and access control system to unlock the door momentarily for authorized users.

  • Energy-efficient motorized latch retraction utilizes standard 2 amp power supply, enabling longer wire runs from power source
  • Quiet operation in both mechanical and electronic states
  • Modular design allows for a simplified installation
