Tech Tip


The Advantex Installation Advantage. 

Detex Advantex exit devices incorporate the friendliest installationNovember email Tech Tip Image design. The troublesome paper template has been eliminated and installing Advantex requires the installer to simply drill several round holes, avoiding the difficult oblong and rectangular cut-outs required by other manufacturers.

One key to installing any exit device correctly is to take care in marking your holes prior to drilling.  When using the paperless template to mark the door and frame you must hold the door firmly closed. Here is a helpful suggestion, supplied to us by a veteran installer.

Using a common floor wedge attached to a short lanyard will allow you to hold the door firmly closed.  While standing on the push side of the door, with the door slightly open, place the floor wedge on the pull side of the door and slide the lanyard under the door.  Now, pull the lanyard so the floor wedge closes the door and slides up snug against the pull side of the door.  You will be able to hold the door closed by pulling on the lanyard, allowing you to mark your holes with accuracy.

We hope you find this suggestion helpful and maybe your next installation is a little more profitable.  Email your installation suggestions to, so we can share it with other installers.
