Delayed Egress Maglock Claims to Save Thousands

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jan 21, 2014

Deploying delayed egress right is tricky even when codes allow it, and making sure you meet all the rules requires carefully picking product. Areas like California and Chicago have stringent rules when using delayed egress, because if employed improperly deaths or injury can result. A maglock from Securitron claims to solve those code pitfalls at the factory, and do it in a single device for thousands less than most delayed egress solutions. In this note, we examine the iMXDa Maglock, how it aims to meet code, and its cost compared to other solutions.
