Electric Dogging (ED)

Available with 10/40 Rim, 30 Mortise, 20/21/50/51 Surface Vertical Rod Devices and 60/61/62/63/70/71/80/81/82/83 Concealed Vertical Rod Devices

Electric Dogging is designed for entrance and exit doors with panic or fire exit hardware. When energized, and after a pushpad is depressed, the pushpad and the latch bolt remain retracted, providing push-pull operation. Relocking all devices is accomplished by using a single switch or through a fire alarm input. 


  • One-touch operation turns any secured door or group of doors into push-pull openings and releases them as required
  • Economical alternative to latch retraction when only dogging is required
  • Maintained latch and pushpad retraction
  • Pushpad remains depressed while latch is retracted, preventing unnecessary cycling, for quieter operation
