Von Duprin Vertical Rod and Latch Guard - RG-27
Series RG27 Vertical Rod and Latch Guards protect the bottom rods of exit devices from the damaging impact of carts or gurneys passing through the doors. (If these bottom rods become damaged, the exit device will not function as intended and can jeopardize the ability to exit safely during an emergency.)
In addition to protecting the vertical rod, the guard provides a smooth, unobstructed surface so the door can be pushed open easily with the bumpers of a wheelchair. The latch guard portion is 10" high. The standard latch guard features 45 degree ramp.
All stainless steel construction, in US32D finish. Latch guards can cover latches as large as 1 1/4"W x 10"H x 1 7/8" projection.
