Protect your investment. Water, salt, chemicals or the wrath of Mother Nature can impact the performance of products in your facility. We understand each geographic location and the surrounding environment creates unique requirements. So if your application requires rust inhibitors, storm resistance or bans electricity, we can help. For a durable, long lasting opening that will endure through some of the harshest conditions, consider our environmental solutions products.
 
Typical applications include:
Outdoor or Wet Locations / Pools / Aquariums / Water Parks / Zoos / Hospitals / Libraries / Museums
 
MultiPoint Lock Tornado
Specifically designed for FEMA 361 and ICC 500 storm shelter applications, Schlage’s MultiPoint Lock Tornado is designed to withstand the most powerful EF5 tornadoes by providing protection from 250 mph winds and 15 pound projectile impacts up to
100 mph. MultiPoint Lock Tornado combines a three-point lock that secures the door at the top, bottom, and traditional lock location on the side with a tornado-resistant Steelcraft Paladin Door.
• FEMA 361 / 320 and ICC 500 certified for use in tornado applications.
• All latches controlled by lock lever – operates just like standard door.
• Vertical rods come pre-assembled in door, simplifying installation.
• Available in all L-Series Mortise Lock trims and finishes.

Windstorm Device
Severe wind and tornadoes requires a safe and secure shelter. Extreme conditions require specialized testing to both the exit device, and the total opening. Von Duprin offers certified and tested products to help keep students, employees, and other patrons safe in the event of an environmental incident.
• Provides superior protection from severe weather.
• Reinforced components help secure the building and its occupants from wind and debris.
• FEMA and ICC compliant.
• Option on WS98/9927 Series Exit Device.
 
Hurricane Device
Coastal areas can be hit hard by severe storms and hurricanes. Openings need to pass extreme certifications to make sure everyone inside the building is safe and secure. Von Duprin offers solutions tested specifically for hurricane resistance.
 
Drainage Holes
Exit devices mounted to exterior doors are often exposed to rain and other elements. Water can enter an exit device and cause critical components to potentially rust or function improperly. Drainage holes are available to allow the water to leave the exit to improve the life of the device.
• Assure exterior exit devices don’t hold water in the mechanism case and rust the mechanics.
• Essential for products mounted on exterior doors to deliver long-lasting functionality and durability.
• Available on 98/99 and 33A/35A Series Exit Devices.
 
Water Proof Switches
Exit devices on the exterior of a building are often exposed to the weather. Humidity and heavy rain can find its way into the exit device and cause electronics to malfunction. Water proof switches help prevent the effects of humidity and rain.
• Designed to function safely in humid or wet conditions.
• Available on RX and LX Switches.
 
Protective Clear Coat
Exit devices exposed to extreme conditions and weather need additional protection against the elements. Protective clear
coat to the exterior of the exit device can help prevent the effects of weather or chemical corrosion.
• Clear protective coating improves chemical and corrosion resistance and provides antimicrobial protection.
• Available on 98/99 and 33A/35A Series Exit Devices.
 
Pneumatic Controlled Exit Device (PN)
The pneumatic latch retraction solution is ideal for applications in hazardous areas where electronics are not permitted. The pneumatic device provides efficient latch retraction through the use of compressed air.
• For applications such as clean rooms, testing facilities, waste water treatment, and areas that use or store flammable materials.
• Pneumatic solenoid retracts latch bolt for momentary or prolonged periods.
• Available with mechanical or pneumatic dogging.
• Available on both Panic and Fire Exit Hardware devices.
• Option on all 98/99 and 33A/35A Series Exit Devices.
 
Safety Glow
In the event of a fire or other emergency situation, facilities can lose power or hallways can fill with smoke. Power failure and smoke can make exit devices and signs difficult to see. Safety Glow provides an additional level of visual identification in the event of an emergency.
• Shows exit door location in darkness or smoke.
• Developed to meet MEA standards.
• Requires no batteries or electronics, the coating is charged when exposed to light.
• Available on 98/99 and 33A/35A Series Exit Devices.

Reduce the Need for Seasonal Adjustments
All Weather Fluid
Some buildings may require numerous door closer adjustments due to change in seasons. This can be an ongoing consumer of time and money. LCN All Weather Fluid is available on all mechanical closers and auto equalizers and works from -30 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
 
Special Rust Inhibitor (SRI)
Humid climates can create conditions for openings that deteriorate the life of the closer. LCN’s Special Rust Inhibitor provides a higher level of protection against weathering conditions.
• Available on mechanical closers.
• Powder coat finish is applied after SRI pretreatment providing higher level of protection over standard or powder coat finish alone.
 
Control the Door That Doesn’t Require a Closer
Slam-free Door Control
Open or close a door quickly without being disruptive or causing damage in a high pressure or windy environment. For free opening doors, LCN has a unique solution where the spring is removed from a closer and hydraulics control the opening and closing speed.
• For doors you want to control, but aren’t required to use a closer by code.
• Available on 4000 Series Closers (except 4030) with ST 2687.
Decrease Damage on High Abuse Doors
Advanced Variable Backcheck
LCN’s Advanced Variable Backcheck provides greater hydraulic resistance to prevent a door from slamming open, protecting people and assets.
• Typical backcheck engages at approximately 75 degrees of the opening cycle and uses hydraulics to slow the speed the door opens to minimize damage. Advanced variable backcheck adjusts engagement to 45 degrees to increase damage prevention.
• Ideal for exterior doors that could be subject to high winds or pressure differences that could cause the door to fly open.
• Available on 4111 Closer Series.
