Series RG-27 Vertical rod and latch guards protect the bottom rods of exit devices from the damaging impacts of carts or gurneys passing through doors. (If bottom rods become damaged, the exit device will not function as intended and can jeopardize the ability to exit safely during an emergency.)
In addition to protecting the vertical rod, the guard provides a smooth, unobstructed surface so the door can be pushed open easily with the bumpers of a wheelchair. The latch guard portion is 10″ high. The standard latch guard features a 45° ramp. The extended latch guard offers a continuous ramp for 3′ or 4′ doors.
All stainless steel construction in 630 finish
Latch guards can cover latches as large as 1 1/4″W x 10″H x 1 7/8″ projection
