ED EasyKit
Electric Dogging for Lockdown

Preventing entry by anyone posing an immediate threat can be a serious challenge. If it's your responsibility to protect students and staff from intruders, now you have a choice: rely on traditional manual locking for front doors - or install a Detex Lockdown system to instantly secure the main doors. In these situations, timing is truly everything. 

With the Detex Lockdown system, a centrally located control switch secures panic hardware devices on the doors, saving precious time. There's no searching for keys, no need for someone to run to the front doors and attempt to secure them while under pressure. Just one person pushing the Detex Lockdown button can control the threat.

The Electric Dogging EasyKit is designed for any door in any type of building where imminent danger to occupants requires immediate and simultaneous locking of multiple doors within the facility. When energized, and after the pushpad is depressed, the pushpad and the latch bolt remain retracted, providing push-pull operation. Immediate relocking of all devices is accomplished by using an external single switch or through a fire alarm input. All components required for this installation are included in one easy-to-order kit. For facilities with multiple doors, additional kits, without the central control switch, can be ordered.

  • Best-in-class components provide for fast, easy installation
  • Great for locking down large campuses, using a single switch
  • All components specified in one easy-to-specify part number

  • Configured EasyKit includes all hardware, instructions, riser illustration, and point-to-point wiring diagram
  • Advantex panic device has stainless steel deadlocking Pullman-type latch bolt
  • Exit hardware is (10/40) is non-handed (reversible)
  • Heavy-duty angled endcap deflects damage away from panic device
  • Available in various configurations, including for single or paired openings
