• 1692 NL-OP Falcon Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device

*Actual product and finish may vary

The Falcon Dor-O-Matic 1692 NL-OP is a Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device for use with cylinder only, less cylinder.  

The design of the 1690 is ideal for demanding, high-traffic applications. The vertical rods and latch mechanisms are concealed in the vertical door stile, ensuring trouble-free operation. Cast metal cover plates and end caps hold up to rigorous use. A quick, singlepoint dogging feature in the housing deactivates the device, permitting unrestricted traffic flow. The 1690 may also be used to retrofit a 1990 Series crossbar device.

Entrance by trim when latchbolt is retracted by key; key removable only when locked.
