Detex EAX-500 Exit Alarm

The Detex EAX-500 is designed for applications that require a battery-powered alarm on secured doors. The alarm, with approximately 100 dB, will sound when someone attempts an unauthorized exit. The redesigned shape and smaller size of the EAX-500 makes it the choice for quick and easy installations on emergency exit and restricted doors.
