The AX device was born out of a need to provide the market with a solution that meets ADA Standards for Accessible Design (Chapters 404.2.7 and 309.4) and California Building Code enhancements. Beginning in January 2014, the California Building Code (Chapter 11B-309.4) establishes a 5 lb. maximum force on operational hardware, including panic hardware. 

The AX Series is UL-certified to meet the California Building Code requirements for accessible openings. This certification helps mitigate the risk of project delays, liability and lost time and money in having to re-specify openings.


  • Available for 98/99, 94/95, 33A/35A and 22 Series devices
  • Available as panic or fire rated
  • ANSI/BHMA A156.3-2020 certified. UL305 and UL10C listed.  
  • Conforms to California Building code requirements for accessibility.
