PX Series Pushpad Openings
Download the PX Series

The PX Series offers an effortless yet effective means of egress while keeping the integrated look and feel of all Syntéga door systems. Used in applications where a full-length exit device is not required, the PX Series shares the same Pushpad profile as in the full-size exit device to ensure continuity of design. The PX also features the same unique integrated lock case as all other Syntégra door systems, and offers many of the same mechanical and electrical options. Syntégra proves that smaller does not necessarily mean less when it comes to functionality.

Typical Installations

Single and egress pairs found in the following applications:

  • Areas of Refuge – stairwell, elevator lobby, elevator cab
  • Openings that do not require a full-size exit device for egress compliance
PX Series Benefits
Tested Durability

  • Heavy-wall aluminum construction
  • Pushpad holds retracted when the door is in the open position – maximizing the clear opening width and reducing damage

Uncompromised Safety

  • ITS listed for fire (UL10C) for
    single-point top latching or top and bottom latching
  • Pushpad fully retracts in the open position for maximum clear opening
  • Top latching instead of a side edge latchbolt and strike for singles and pairs prevents catching on clothing or equipment
  • Optional antimicrobial coatings available for healthcare, educational and other germ-sensitive environments
  • CleanVue – Simple hygienic release feature allows for full access to the pushbar for sanitizing without disassembly.

Unequaled Aesthetics

  • Minimized pushbar end caps with hidden fasteners provides clean, uninterrupted lines
  • Pushpad available in architectural and décor-matching finishes
  • Escutcheon-free levers available in popular styles and finishes
  • Optional integrated top strike prep without the need for a surface mounted auxiliary plate
  • Projection-type latchbolt minimizes top strike view and minimizes top door "notch" required by others
  • No floor strikes required - Fire ratings without bottom latchbolts
Enhanced Security

  • Patent-pending friction-limiting latchbolt with 7/8" throw
  • Available in top latching or top and bottom latching
  • Optional exterior lever with
    anti-abuse clutch
  • Latches and operating mechanisms concealed within steel door and protected from attack, abuse
    and tampering


  • Extensive range of functions to fit most openings and applications
  • Access control-ready with electrified lever and RX options
  • Electrical options available in kit-form for future upgrades

LM - Latchbolt monitoring. Switch mounted in top strike to provide notification that the door is secure.

ELS - Electrified lever. Allows lever to rotate to retract the latch(es) when energized. Fail-Secure or Fail-Safe.


Concealed fasteners on pushpad end caps, latches and handles.


Top latching only standard with – 7/8" (22.2 mm) throw. Projection type Friction limiting-design with deadlatch feature.
Bottom – Massive Stainless Steel 7/8" throw bolt with conical tip.

Optional Keyed Cylinder graphStandard diameter Mortise Cylinder with "standard" cam. Can accept 1" cylinder length or greater. A 1" cylinder length does not require a collar. Anything above this cylinder length will require a spacer collar equal to the dimension in excess of 1". (Example 1-1/8" cylinder length requires a 1/8" collar).
Function 10 -
Back-to-back Cylinders
Requires a 1/4" collar for a 1" cylinder length. For longer cylinders, add the dimension in excess of the 1" cylinder length to the collar thickness. (Example 1-1/4" cylinder length requires a 1/2" collar).
