A concealed vertical exit device is the ideal solution for openings requiring enhanced security and streamlined aesthetics – no surface-mounted rods, mullions or metal wraps are visible.
Von Duprin offers two concealed vertical cable solutions: one for hollow metal and aluminum doors (-49 option) and is known as Concealed Vertical Cable (CVC); and one for wood doors (-50 option) and is known as Wood Door Concealed (WDC). Both the CVC and WDC solutions are available for panic- or fire-rated applications and utilize the standard Von Duprin trim used with the 33/35A Series and 98/99 Series exit devices.
What makes the Von Duprin concealed vertical cable solutions truly unique is their ability to perform in less than ideal conditions. The flexibility and slack in the cable system allows the device to function properly even if the top latch, device centerline and bottom latch are not vertically aligned. The concealed vertical system is not as sensitive to changing door conditions and requires significantly less maintenance over its lifetime than a traditional rod.
