Delayed egress systems from Von Duprin
Until recently, balancing code requirements for free or delayed egress with a facilities needs has been difficult to achieve. With the Chexit, DE5300 and RCM options available from Von Duprin, we can help you maintain the safety and security of your residents, staff and facility, while also meeting the recent Special Locking Arrangement changes per the National Fire Protection Association..
The Von Duprin® CHEXIT is a delayed egress option available on all 98/99, 98/99XP and 33A/35A series exit devices. It is commonly used in behavioral health, memory care, and maternity applications to prevent patient abduction or elopement and in retail stores for asset protection. All control inputs, auxiliary locking, local alarm and remote signaling outputs are self-contained. The CHEXIT can easily be integrated with access control, fire prevention and infant protection systems.
The standard CHEXIT device sounds an alarm and keeps the door secured for 15 seconds following an exit attempt with immediate release upon fire alarm. Numerous configurable settings allow the CHEXIT to be customized based on specific application or code requirements.
Recently updated, the improved design of the CHEXIT makes installation and maintenance easier. The new motor driven blocking actuator is quiet and energy efficient, with an input current of only 1.25 amps and wire run up to 500 feet from the power transfer to power supply (14 AWG). Additional options were added including indefinite release delay to address 2015 IBC requirements for controlled egress.
The Remote CHEXIT Module (RCM) provides the same functionality for smaller door sizes by placing electronic components in a control box. Likewise, the DE5300 utilizes a control box, RX-LX low current request to exit panic device and a Schlage direct hold electromagnetic lock.

Delayed and Controlled Egress for Healthcare Environments
The importance of free egress for fire and life safety is well understood, but did you know that it could put patients who are incapable of self-preservation at higher risk of elopement and abduction? That’s why so many healthcare facilities turn to delayed egress solutions. Recent code changes related to controlled egress provide more ways than ever before to increase security. Allegion conducted a webinar with Medical Construction and Design that explored the basics of delayed and controlled egress; how it can be customized for asset protection, infant protection, behavioral health and memory care applications; and codes that govern its use.
