Our Company installs Access Control Systems. We have a School that have an Exit Door Secured by a Magnetic Lock ( Fire Route.)
Egress via a push to Exit Button and A Green Emergency Release unit. Pupils have damaged the Green Emergency unit several times.
Can the unit be Removed as the Lock is also connected through a Fire Alarm Interface Unit?
Thanks for your Assistance

In accordance with BS 7273-4 2007 green emergency release units are required unless the doors can be opened manually. The door has to be fail safe when the fire alarm operates, and the push to exit button is simply the means of operating the door and not covered by the above standard. You could try relocating the green emergency release units away from the door within a 2 metre distance which is acceptable to the standard or you can purchase devices that cover the unit and has to be lifted before you can operate the unit.
