PANIC-B 0LT MECHANISM.

Specification of Letters IE atent. Pate t d J ly 13 1920 Application filed April 8, 1916. Serial No. 89,980.

Panic-Bolt Mechanism, of which the fol-' lowing is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to emergency exit locks or so-called panic bolts of the type which are applied to the doors of theaters, schoolhouses, department stores, and other buildings for facilitating exit when a panic occurs, for instance, in the case of fire.

The invention refers more particularly to panic bolt mechanism for double swinging doors, but in some aspects of the inylenpanic boltprovided with detent mechanism for holding the bolt or bolts in retracted position automatically on the opening of the door, but this feature is likewise unessential in some aspects of the invention.

.One of the primary objects of the invention is the provision of a panic bolt mechanism embodyinga lock case mortised in the door, bolts extending from' said case to the top and bottom -edges of the door, mechanism in the case actuated by across bar.

or the like, for retracting the bolts, and

means in the case for holding the bolts re-. tracted automatically on the opening of the,

door, said lastnamed means being adapted for actuation to release the bolts under certain conditions, as hereinafter described. By my improvements, the bolts are effecs tively locked in retracted position as the door is opened, so as to prevent their projecting ends from contacting with the threshold and linted'respectively when the door is closed again, which 1s a very d1sadvanta geous feature where the'bolts are of the dead bolt rather than the latch variety andwhere the door is apt to be closed by careless or ignorant persons, or by a strong draft. o

Another object of the invention 1s to provide a panic bolt mechanism'in which the' detent device for holding a bolt or bolts in retracted position automatically on the opening of, the door, may be locked in it's operat ve position by a key, so that the bolt or bolts may not be released thereafter except by akey 1n thehands of an authorized per son.

I also propose tofurnish a panic bolt mechanism in which the detent device for locking the ,bolts in retracted position can be actuated by hand if desired, so'that in the case of a school-house, for example, the

janitor can dog the bolt or bolts in retracted position without the use of'a key, although the bolt or bolts can not be released from {{he retracted position without using the ey. s Another feature provided by my inventlon s'a means for preventing the bolts from' being released by an instrument inserted between the lintel and the door, or between the threshold and the door, for the purpose of exerting pressure on one of" the bolt heads.

The invention also has in view the general improvement in the construction and operation of devicesof the class to which the invention relates.-

, To these ends, the invention consists in the novel features and combinations of parts to be hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings,

Fig. 10 is a detail of the detent or dogging slide; and

Fig. 11 is a fragmentaryview of one of the lock fronts, as hereinafter described.

Referring to the drawings, 1' have shown my improvements applied to a pair 01 double swinging doors A, B mounted in a frame or casing C. As viewed in Fig. 1, the right. hand door B is provided with a mortise lock 20 having a latch bolt 21 ad apted to take into a keeper at the free edge of the lefthand door A, as hereinafter described. The doors are arranged to swing outwardly of course, as is usual in emergency exit doors. hile the particular construction of the mortise lock 20 is not material to the invention, I may state that I prefer to have it of the general type shown in my Patent No. 1,137,787, dated May 4, 1915, the latch bolt 21 being retractable from the outside of the door by a key adapted to a cylinder lock 22 (Fig. 3),- and said latch bolt being retractable from the inside of the door by means of a push bar 23. This push bar is pivotally mounted behind suitable 'es-' cutcheons 24 and has a part extending into the case'of lock 20 for retracting the bolt in the usual manner when pressure is exerted on the push bar.

Referring now to the lefthand door A, this door is provided with vertically directed bolts extending along the free edge of the door and actuated by mechanism in a lock 25 mortised in the door A'opposite the lock 20. A'bolt rod 26 extends upwardly from the lock 25 in a suitable mortise at the front edge of the door, and carries a bolt head 27 adapted to cooperate with a keeper in the lintel of the door frame, and a similar bolt rod 28 extending downwardly from the lock 25 in a mortise in the edge'of the door and carries at its lower end a bolt head 30 adapted to cooperate with a keeper in the threshold. Portions of the bolt rods 26', 28 are shown in full lines in Fig. 4, but I have not considered it necessary to illustrate these rods in detail, nor to present detailviews oi the bolt heads 27, 30-, and their cooperating keepers, it being understood that these parts may be of the usual or any desiredkind.

The respective bolt members on the door A are adapted to be retracted from their op erative positions by means of a push bar 31 similar to the push bar '23 and similarly mounted in escutcheons 32. It will be observed that the push bars and escutcheons on the respective doors may be of identical design and location so that the panic bolt mechanism as a whole may be given a very symmetrical appearance, as shown-in Fig. 1.

Turning now to the mechanism for actuating the bolt rods 26, 28 from the push bar 31, the end portion of the push bar 31 which is adjacent the lock 25 is provided in the customary manner with a litter member 33 extending into a recess 34 at the lower edge of the lock case and adaptedto beam 40 interconnecting the bolt members.

The bolt rod 28 is screwed at its' upper end into a bolt member 41 of irregular iiorm,

having a socket portion-42 which receives the bolt rod 28 and is guided vertically in "a cut-away portion 43 in the lower wall of the lock case. The body portion of the bolt member 41 is inclined with respect to the socket portion 42, and in the form of a bar overlying a portion ofthe slide 35. At its upper end-,- the member 41 has a pin 44 above the slide but substantially in line V therewith, and this pin 44 engages a notch 45 in one end of the walking beam member 40. This walking beam member 40 is swiveled to the case by means of a hub portion embra'cing'apost 46 cast on the back of the case. At its opposite end, the walking beam member is provided with a notch 47 similar to the notch '45, which notch-47 receives a,

pin 48' onthe'lower portion of a bolt mem ber 49. This bolt member 49 has a socket portion 50 into which the lower end of the of the lock case. The body portion of the bolt member 49 is in line with the socket portion 50 and with the socket portion 42 of bolt member 41. The ,righthand end portion of the walking beam 'member or lever 40 (Fig. 4)'is,provid-ed with a depending inclined portion 52, adapted to be engaged by the upward-1y directed extremity 53 of the lifting lever 38 previously described in such a manner that the lever 38 may actuate the bolt members 41, 49 by turning the walking beam member 40 on its axis. As the lifter member 33 of the push bar is raised so as to elevate the slide 35,- the lever 38 is turned on its pivot 39 so as to push upwardly the righthand end (Fig.4) of/the walking beam 40; Thus, the

' walking beam member raises the bolt member 41 by virtue of the pin and slot connection 44, 45, while the bolt member 49 is depressed by virtue of its similar connection with the opposite end of the walking beam member. By this means the bolt rods are actuated in opposite directions by pressure onthe push bar so that their bolt heads are withdrawn simultaneously from their keepers, thereby releasing the door. In the particular form shown, the upper and lower bolts are normally held in the protracted position partly by gravity acting on the lower bolt, and partly by a coiled spring 40 acting on the walking beam 40 in such a manner as to normally hold it in the position shown in Fig. 4. This spring 40 is connected at one end to the walking beam, as shown at 40*, and at the opposite end to the lock case, as shown at 40. It will be understood, therefore, that under ordinary conditions, the bolts would only remain in the retracted position so long as pressure is exerted on the push bar, but in order to lock and hold the bolts in retracted position while therdoor is open, I employ the detent or dogging mechanism to be hereinafter described.

In order to dog the bolts against retrac-v it is adapted to be held in the path of the bolt member 49. I In the particular example illustrated, the lower end of this bolt member 49 is provided with a notch 55 in which the (logging lever 54 is adapted to stand when the bolts are in their protracted position, so as to prevent the downward movement of the upper bolt. By dogging one bolt, the other bolt is naturally dogged by virtue ofthe walking beam connection between the bolts. The lever 54 ispivoted to the case at 56 and acted on by a spring 57 which normally holds it in theipath of the.

bolt member 49, but in order to permit of the release of the bolts by the push bar, the lever 54 is shifted out oi its blocking position when the push bar is actuated. To this end, the slide 8-5 may be provided withan extension 58 adapted toengage a portion of the lever 54 when said slide is raised so as to shift the dogging lever from the position shown in Fig. 4 to that shown in Fig. 5, and thereby permit the bolts to be withdrawn.

The lock 25 has a front or face plate 59 which is mortised in the free edge of the door A, and has a part serving as a strike or keeper for the latch' bolt 21 on the door In the particular form, .shown, I mount a guard or dogging lever 54 in the lower part of the lock case where.

B. For this purpose, the front 59 is provided with an opening60 to receive the latch bolt 21, the case of the lock 25 being cut away at 61 back ofthe strike opening. On the inside of the door,'a portion 62 of the front 59 extends laterally over a portion of the lock ease flush with the inner surface of the door, said portion62 bein setback from;

the edge of the door so as to-leave the strike opening 61 open at the inner side. On the other or outer side of the lock front 59, the same is provided with a laterally projecting lip 63, a portion of which is in line with the keeper opening 60, said lip 63 being similar to the lip of an ordinary strike plate. Thus, when the lefthand door A is closed, the

righthand door B being open, the latter door,

may be readily closed, the latch bolt 21 striking the lip 63 and being pressed inward thereby and thereafter springing .out into the same, and the doors can then be locked. by the .use of the vertical bolts, as hereinafter described.

Referring to the detent or dogging mechanism for the vertical bolts, the construction in the particular example shown is as follows: A dogging member 64 in the nature of a sliding bolt is guided horizontally in the upper portion of the lock 25 so as to co operate with the boltmember 49. This bolt member 49 is of somewhat irregular shape, having lateral projection or: shoulder 65 at the side directed toward the hinged edge of the door. Atthe other side, i. 6., that which is disposed toward the free edge of the door, the member 49 is provided witha notch 66. The detent or dogging slide 64 is adapted to hold the bolts in retracted position by engaging the shoulder 65 or notch 66, for which purpose the dogging member is mounted so asto extend over the bolt 49 atright angles thereto, andis provided with a rearwardly extending shoulder 67 adapted to engage the shoulder 65, and with a projection or shoulder 68 adapted to fit within the notch 66. The shouldersor projections 67., 68' are spaced from each otherso that they cannot-engage thedogging member or slide at the same time. The dogging mem .ber is guided inthe casefor the necessary lateral movement by means of a button or.

head .69 on said member guided in'an opening in the face or front plate 59 and adapted to project to the outside of the lock. The dogging member is guided at its rear portion by lugs 7 on the back of the case. A spring 71, connecting a projection 72 on the dogging member with a small post 73 on the case, tendsto hold the dogging member in a protracted position, as shown in Fig. 5, and when the bolts are retracted the spring 71 when'free to act will pull the dogging slide into such a position that the shoulder 67 will overlie the shoulder 65, thereby clogging the upper bolt and the connected lower bolt in I the retracted position. Normally the shoulder 67 of the dogging slide is held by the spring in contact with a surface 65 on the member 49 below the shoulder 65, but when the member 49 is drawn down to a predetermined extent, the spring. 71 will project the shoulder 67 over the top of the shoulder 65, as shown in Fig. 5, whereby the slide. 64 is caused to act asa detent for the bolts.

I't'is sometimes desirable to lock the bolts in the retracted position so'that they cannot be released except by the actuation of suitable key mechanisnnand in the form shown, the lock mechanism comprises a cylinder lock 74 adapted to draw the dogging member 64 back in the case and shift it to such a position that the shoulder 68 will engage the notch 66, for the purpose of dogging the I bolts. In the form shown, the dogging memher isprovided with an upwardly projecting talon member 75, and with a talon surface 76, and a rollback or cam arm 77 on the cylinder lock is adapted to engage these parts for the purpose of retracting and releasing the dogging member. Supposing the parts tobe in the position shown in Fig. 5, the dogging member may be retracted by the key mechanism to a position in which it will dog the bolt member 49 by turning the rollback or cam arm 77 in a counterclockwisedirection so that it will engage the talon 7 5 and thereby move the dogging member to the dogging position shown in Fig. 7. It is understood, of course, that while this is being done the bolts should be held in the retracted position by pushing down on the push bar 31. As the dogging member reaches the limit of its rearward movement, a leaf spring 78 snaps into engagement with a recess 79 on the rear portion of the dogging member so as to hold it firmly in the retracted position. When the boltshave beendogged in this manner, the head 69 of the dogging member'will be completely withdrawn within its guide opening in the face ofthe lock, and it will there'- fore be impossible to manipulate the dog'- ging member by hand from the exterior of the lock in such a manner as to release the bolts. The bolts can, however, be readily released by the key, for which purpose the cam armor rollback 77 is turned'in clock:

'66 andthe bolts are then shot by gravity act-, ing on the lower bolt, and the spring 40 act ing on the walking beam or connecting member '40. 1

' It will be observed that the front or face plate 20 0f the lock 20 on door B is provided at the outside with a beveled portion 79 (Fig. 7 9), and at the inside with a similar beveled portion 80, both of which beveled portions are in line withthe proj eating head or button 69 of the dogging slide. hus, when the door A is in the closed position, and the door B is open, and thereupon the latter door is closed, the beveled portion or surface 80' will strike the projecting head of the dogging slide, and it will be forced back into the position shown in Fig. 9 by the face plate of the lock 20 when the door B is fully closed.

In this position, the dogging slide is clearer the bolt member 49, and doesnot dog the same. Supposing, on the other hand, that the door B is in the closed position, and the door A is open, and thereupon the latter door is closed, the projecting end of the dogging i slide will engage the beveled portion 79 of the face plate of lock 20, on the stationary door, and willthereby be forced back into the releasing position. It will be understood,

therefore, that the dogging slide under the influence of its spring 71 will dog the bolts when they are retracted for opening the door on which said bolts are mounted, and that in closing the double doors the bolts are automatically released by the inward movement of the dogging slide which is incident to the closing of the doors. This same action takes place no matter which door is closed first, for if the'door B is closedfirst, the face plate on'its lock 20racts in thenature of a fixed abutment which presses inward the dogging slide when the latter comes in contact therewith, while if the door A is closed first, the

face plate on doorB will actuate the dogging slide as the latter door is closed. In

either case, the repression of the dogging member liberates the vertical bolts and causes their door is opened, and that while the release of said boltsdoes not follow as a necessary consequence of the closing. of their particular door, it does follow when both doors are closed. This is a very desirable arrangement for double doors, because in many 1nmas c stances'it is not necessary or desirable tolock one ofthe doors in aclosed positionwhile the other remains open. In Fig. 19, the beveled bolt 20 is a bolt which controls the mechanism for dogging the bolt 21 automatically on the closing of the door. This mechanism forms no part of my invention, but it may be wellto state that the lip 63 on thefront 59 of lock'25 is extended upwardly tocooperate with this controller bolt, and that at the oppositesideof the front 59, the same has a beveled surface 20 which will contact with the controller bolt and presses the same inward when the 'door door B.

I have already explained how the vertical bolts on door A may belocked in the retracted position by a key. Thus, in the case of a schoolhouse, the janitor may look the bolts so that the doors can be freely opened at all times merely by pushing on the same from the inside without the necessity of actuating the bolt mechanism. The bolts cannot be tripped, under these circumstances, except by the janitor or other authorized personhaving the proper key. In

the particular form shown, the janitor may dog the'bolts in the retracted position without using a key, although it will be necessary.

to use a key to' trip the bolts.- In order to do this, the janitor may push the dogging slide is adapted to coeperate with a keeper on a fixed jamb. This will be readily apparent because in the particular form illustrated, the door B sometimes acts as a fixed abutment, and the repression of the dogging slide does not necessitate any movement of such door, as previously explained. It will be understood that the release of the bolts is effected automatically by the closingof the door or doors, and that nevertheless the .automatic dogging and releasing mechanism 7 can be actuated by a key in sucha manner as to, dog the bolts in retracted position until the key is again used for releasing them.

It will be seen that by my invention, I

provide a detent or a dogging member for a boltmechanism which is actuated to dog the bolts automatically on the opening of the door to which said bolts are applied by actuation of a push bar or the like, said detent or dogging member being then in a position in which it can be readily tripped; butthat j 7 this same detent or dogging member also A 7 closed after adapted to dog the bolts when moved in an opposite direction by suitable key mechanism, which keymechanism will lock the bolts in retracted position so that they cannot be released except by using the proper key.
