The CHEXIT is a delayed egress option, commonly used in behavioral health, memory care and maternity applications, to prevent patient abduction or elopement. Additionally, it can be used in large commercial retail back door applications to deter theft. 

It is a solution for controlled (indefinite release delay) or delayed (standard 15 second release delay) egress applications. All control inputs, auxiliary locking, local alarm and remote signaling outputs are self-contained. The CHEXIT can also easily be integrated with access control, fire prevention and infant protection systems. The standard CHEXIT device sounds an alarm and keeps the door secured for 15 seconds following an exit attempt, with an immediate release upon a fire alarm sounding. 

Numerous configurable settings allow the CHEXIT to be customized based on specific application or code requirements and is available on Von Duprin 98/99 Series, XP98/99 Series and 33A/35A Series devices.

The remote CHEXIT module (RCM) provides the same functionality as a standard CHEXIT for smaller door sizes by placing electronic components in a control box. Likewise, the DE5300 utilizes a control box, RX-LX low current request-to-exit panic device and a Schlage direct-hold electromagnetic lock.


Motor-driven blocking actuator provides quiet and energy-efficient operation

Flexible field configurable functions, including:

  • Nuisance delay 0, 1, 2 or 3 seconds
  • Audio sound levels high and low
  • Power-up setting can be armed and disarmed

RCM and DE5300 are also available to accommodate various door configurations and applications

  • Meets International Building Code (IBC) for Delayed Egress and Controlled Egress Systems.
