Escape door hood - advice & installation

The escape door bonnet is used to secure emergency exit doors. Escape door bonnets are placed above the emergency exit handle of a door to create a barrier to improper use. This ensures that no one accidentally operates the door handle, as the bonnet must be deliberately knocked off. It is thus a simple escape door safety device. In case of emergency, the escape door bonnet can be easily knocked off without causing injury and the door handle can be used.

Escape door bonnets are used to secure:

  • Emergency exits
  • Fire doors
  • Escape windows

The escape door cover is available with or without a lock. In the variant with lock, the escape door bonnet can be removed via the lock without knocking it off and the door can be opened. This option is suitable for door systems that have to be opened several times by authorised persons, e.g. for supplier traffic.

Components of an escape door bonnet:

  • Escape route bonnet (reusable)
  • Fixing straps with predetermined breaking point (exchangeable, usually 1-4 fixing points)
  • Pictogram
