Cylinder Dogging Enhancement for 1686/1786 Exit Devices

news3a-jan2014To improve compatibility with cylinders supplied by others, we have refined the cylinder dogging option on the 1686/1786 exit device offering. The cylinder dogging device has been moved from the center of the push pad to the center of the filler plate, which allows for a cleaner look for the push pad. This will also now accommodate all standard mortise cylinder sizes and cams, including our standard 15/16" cylinder and cam.

This change, now in effect, impacts both the standard 1686 CVR and 1786 Rim exit devices. This change, however, does not influence list pricing for these exit devices. Updated installation instructions are available for download from the resource center on KawneerDirect.com.
