Does Von Duprin offer an exit device for exterior use?

Most Panic devices are not designed for exterior applications.

  • As with any mechanical device, exposure to the elements may affect the operation and life of the device and/or finish and may void the warranty. 
  • If the device is used on exterior applications, we recommend the Von Duprin mechanical 98/99 exit device with one of the powder coated finishes.
  • Von Duprin offers a Weep Hole feature that will allow liquids that get into the device to drain out of the device.
  • Regular lubrication of the device with DuraLube (available as part 091091) may extend the life of the device.
Von Duprin launched the 98/9952 Pool Gate Device in 2019 which has some features beneficial for exterior use.
If the application does not require the pull side lever to be mounted higher on the door, the 98/9952EO device can be paired with regular 990 and 996 series -R/V trims (Example 996L-R/V), but would need to be ordered on separate lines at this time.
Water and electricity do not mix.  Von Duprin electrified devices can NOT be used in an exterior environment.
