Falcon AX

The AX was born out of a need to provide the market with a solution that meets the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design (Chapters 404.2.7 and 309.4), which state that the force required to activate operable parts shall be 5 pounds maximum. The 2013 California Building Code (Chapter 11B-
309.4) adopted virtually identical requirements that went into effect January 1st, 2013.
Falcon prides itself on providing a solid product at a solid price. With the implementation of the ADA standards into the new California Building Code, the need for accessibility that is both reliable and affordable is clear. The new Falcon AX device option delivers code compliance at an affordable price, bringing unbeatable value to the industry.
UL certification on new California Building Code requirements
The AX is subject to Allegion’s standard testing to ensure it meets high standards for durability, use and functionality. We also received a new UL certification confirming for you — and building inspectors — that an independent third party has verified that the AX is compliant with the 5 pound maximum operational force requirement. The AX is a UL-certified exit device designed to meet the new requirements put in place by ADA Standards and the California Building Code for accessible openings.
Accessibility at a solid price
On the surface, the AX device looks and performs the same as traditional Falcon exit devices. The difference is that the AX device has been re-engineered to meet 5 pound operational force requirements. The chassis now requires less push force to actuate the latch while still keeping your doors secure, providing you a solid product at a solid price.
