High Security that Meets Your School Budget Needs

In the school sector, security and budget are top priorities.

PRECISION can help you achieve both—without sacrificing one for the other. Our premium-quality panic and exit hardware give schools the access and egress they require. And because our products are durable—which means, long life cycles and minimal maintenance—the reduction in cost of ownership makes it well worth your investment.



Our experience is second only to that of our customers.

We work closely with many of the largest K-12 schools and higher education facilities to procure, implement and maintain security products the way you need. And with PRECISION as part of the dormakaba family of brands, we can address every security need you have for every opening. We can build a total solution offering that includes PRECISION exit devices, BEST locks, and STANLEY door closers and hinges.



True Architectural Finishes

A true architectural finish—chrome plating over brass for each exterior component, not just a color match—is applied to all Apex and Olympian PRECISION hardware. These finishes help our devices resist rust, corrosion and salty air over the full life of the product. Not only do these finishes provide a consistent aesthetic look throughout a building, but they also ensure longer-lasting quality.


Motorized Latch Retraction

Motorized Latch Retraction is an ideal solution for hospitals, schools, museums, libraries, and other facilities where reduced operational noise and increased flexibility matter. In addition to the high-quality standards you expect from all PRECISION exit devices, MLR exits also offer:

  • Less noise
  • Low current requirements
  • Longer wire runs
  • More flexibility
  • Quieter performance
  • Seamless integration and interaction
  • Reduced maintenance

The MLR feature can be interfaced with automatic door operators, card readers, push buttons, toggle/key switches and fire alarm systems.



Cast Construction

Unlike other exit devices, the APEX 2000 Series is made of heavy-duty cast construction to provide maximum strength and durability. With an investment cast steel chassis, you can be assured that PRECISION exit devices protect against forced entry and reduce the risk of bending. And with few moving components, our devices have limited failure and longer life. Trust PRECISION's solid reputation for strength and durability.




Secure your environment against the unseen world of bacteria and other microbes. Our UltraShield coating inhibits the growth of bacteria and other microbes on the surface of the hardware. Incorporating a naturally occurring silver ion exchange that creates a sanitary surface, UltraShield provides long-lasting product protection that is on guard 24/7.


10 Million Operational Cycles

The APEX 2000 Series has proven itself to be one of the most durable exit devices on the market. In an independent UL test, the Apex 2000 was tested to 10 million cycles—far exceeding minimum 500,000 cycles required by Grade 1 standards. With each incremental millionth cycle, a test audit was performed by an authorized UL inspector to confirm it maintained the necessary loaded and unloaded operational force requirements as defi¬ned in the ANSI/BHMA 156.3 Grade 1 test procedures.
