Exit Access Control Door, Advice Needed

We have a client who wants to put access control on a door going from their manufacturing floor into their office area. The door is labeled as an exit since you can get to the outside after going through the office. We would have to use a maglock on this door because there's no push bar or handle to install a strike on. We can tie into the fire alarm for emergency exits, but my concern is what if there's another emergency. The AHJ had no advice or opinion on the matter. Any ideas?
