• EL1690 EO Falcon 36" Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device - Less Power Supply Controller - 24VDC, 16A

*Actual product and finish may vary

Concealed vertical rod touchbar device with electric latch retraction for aluminum or hollow metal doors.

Tough performance for high-traffic applications.

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.
