PR-7200 Series – Full Width Panic Release – Available March 2019

Emergency and Panic Exit Devices must provide an easy method of escape for building occupants in the event of a fire or some other emergency, as well as provide security against intrusion and burglary.

Within these scenarios there are two types of users:

  • Those that are not trained in the emergency evacuation of the building, e.g. shoppers in a retail outlet.
  • Or those that have been trained to use the device, e.g. office workers

Within these standards, it is classed that a horizontal bar device be used for buildings where it is envisaged that the users will not have been trained in evacuation techniques.

The Axim PR 7200 Series provides solutions which comply to both standards ensuring that, whatever the project type, specifiers can rely on Axim PR 7200 Series to supply the solution.

The Axim PR 7200 Full Width Series is compliant to BS EN 1125.

  • The internal mechanism is manufactured from stainless and plated steel, with 8.5mm diameter steel operating rods that provide a 16mm bolt throw.
  • Optional external key access also available.

Richard Reeve To Take Axim To New Heights

TPG, The Parkside Group Limited is pleased to announce that Richard Reeve, Sales Director will be exclusively looking after one of its major divisions, Axim Architectural Hardware.

Richard has been with TPG for 15 years and is excited to take the leading hardware brand to even greater heights.  Richard said, “Axim is one of the most trusted brands in the industry for reliability and quality.  Axim celebrated 30 years of business last year and having worked throughout the industry I know that the         Axim TC-8800 series of Concealed Transom Closers is well known for its superb long-term performance and as part of TPG, Axim, is backed up by market leading delivery to its European wide distributor and partner network.”

Over the last 30 years Axim has extensively developed its product range to include all the hardware that top quality commercial doors require. Richard commented that “Everyone knows the top performer the Axim TC Series of Concealed Closers, however, I am not sure that everyone is aware of how extensive the Axim product range is.  The Axim PR Series Panic Exit range is comprehensive, and the Axim Panic Exit Locking Handle is one of the most high-quality products I have seen which fits across the entire range.”

The Axim branded product range includes Emergency and Panic Exit Devices that are certified to BS EN 179 and BS EN 1125, a range of handles including D-handles, Lever Handles, Pad Handles, Pull Handles and Tube Handles, Floor Springs which can take a door weight of up to 150Kg, Locks including Mortice, Dead Latch, Extension Flush Bolts for security slave doors.

The Axim TC-8800 Series of Concealed Transom Closer will fit most major manufacture’s doors and has 3 different strengths.  The TC 9900 is a universal closer which is ideal for repair and maintenance and where closers have failed, the TC9900 offers a fast solution without the need for costly repairs.

Richard continues “Axim is known very well in the aluminium door industry, however the Surface Mounted Door Closer, the Axim FC Series, offers a solution for both aluminium and timber doors, in fact it even comes as standard with fixings to suit both materials.  This means that installers and distributors can minimise the closers they carry, and the Axim FC-1000 Series has been tested for Fire Rating to BS 476-22 1987.”

Offering innovative solutions has been at the fore of Axim and launching new products such as the Axim ES-2100 Electric Strike a remote access product that offers installers a reduction in installation and maintenance time.  The Axim LK-2100 Reversible Deadlatch offers a non-handed solution which means that installers and distributors can reduce their stock-holding by only stocking one Deadlatch instead of two.

Last year Axim had a face-lift with a new revamped logo, which joined the new website and Technical Literature which offers extensive technical, specification and installation information with speedy navigation to get you to the place you need to be.

Axim designs and supplies a comprehensive in-stock range of transom closers, panic exit devices, electric strikes, deadlatches, surface mounted door closers, floor-springs, flush-bolts, letter-plates, locks and handles through a pan-European distributor supply chain.  For more information please contact Axim  on 0208 685 9685 or email
