Why Glass Professionals and Architects Choose CRL-Blumcraft®

Premium Aesthetics

Premium Aesthetics

Blumcraft® Panics feature a slim, tubular design that showcases elegance and sophistication. When paired with glass doors, they produce clean, unobstructed views and allow ample daylight to flow through building interiors. This makes them ideal for high-end contemporary buildings.

Curved crossbar ends are a key attribute of Blumcraft® Panics. They deliver a smooth, continuous flow of hardware through glass doors, creating streamlined aesthetics. The push area is subtly sandblasted to provide clear indication and attractive visuals.

Safety and Quality

Safety and Quality

Blumcraft® Panics’ operating mechanism features a roller latch bolt at the top of the door that retracts when the crossbar is gently pushed. This allows fast and easy egress during emergencies. Curved crossbar ends ensure compliance with UL 305 4.3 by preventing clothing from being caught on the end of the crossbar in an emergency exit scenario.

Blumcraft® Panic Devices have been rigorously tested for performance, and are UL, ULC, and ANSI/BHMA certified. They have a 50-year track record for safety and quality, which is why they’ve earned the trust of glass professionals and architects alike.
