Detex Corporation is the exclusive manufacturer of a unique exit alarm designed to assure restaurant managers that delivery and trash doors are never left unmonitored. The EAX-3500 combines the features of an exit alarm and a door-prop alarm in a wall-mounted unit that cannot be turned off. Its bypass mode allows only a pre-selected amount of time before the alarm sounds.
“This is a different category of exit alarms,” said Ken Kuehler, National Accounts Manager of Detex. “It eliminates the risk that an employee will forget to re-arm it after the five or ten minutes necessary to accept a delivery or take out the trash, so it’s always watching the door.”
Using the main store key (rather than a key that fits only the alarm), the manager selects the time appropriate for most kitchen-door functions, ranging from five to forty minutes. The time is indicated on an LED light bar that clearly indicates armed status and bypass time. At a glance, employees and delivery personnel can see how many minutes are remaining before the alarm sounds. Powered by a low-voltage transformer, the 100dB alarm also has a rechargeable backup battery. With tamper-resistant housing and circuits, the EAX-3500 is built to prevent employees from defeating the alarm.
“Managers can feel better about reducing the threat of robbery or theft,” said Kuehler. “With the EAX-3500 in place, the restaurant’s most vulnerable door is protected.”
