350 IR Entrances Expand Their Impact

Seven years ago, to meet the growing need for hurricane and impact resistant products, we introduced the 350 Impact Resistant (IR) Entrance (used on the Cancer Center of Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, see “Spotlight" article). Over time, we have continued to test and expand our 350 IR Entrance product capabilities, incorporating improved material and new hardware. As a result, we now provide additional glazing options for Large Missile Impact (LMI) applications in addition to expanded Locking/Exit Device options.

New glazing options for LMI applications include 3M VHB Glazing Tape and Dry Glaze Gaskets. The Locking/Exit Device Options include: Adams Rite 2180 2-Point Dead Lock; Adams Rite G86 Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device; Calibre 9100 Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device; Dor-O-Matic HH1490 Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device; and Von Duprin 9947 Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Device. All of these options are listed in our price catalog and are available for download from the resource center of KawneerDirect.com. Additional 350 IR Entrances information including architectural details, 3-part guide specifications, CAD details, BIM models and NOA reports can be found on kawneer.com.
