Kawneer’s Paneline® EL Adds Security 
Kawneer Co. Inc. in Norcross, Ga., has introduced the Paneline® EL (Electric Latch) exit device. Paneline EL incorporates the added security of controlled user access with the company’s Paneline design, which integrates a concealed exit device, door cross rail and full-width push pad.

The narrow lines of the Paneline EL blend with a wide range of entrance structures and architectural styles. The actuating panel recesses into the cross rail of the door when in the open position, simulating the appearance of a streamlined push plate. In the latched position, the panel protrudes only 1 1⁄8 inches from the door; when manually operated the pad retracts to approximately a ¼-inch projection. www.kawneer.com
