I need to fit an opening mechanism to our village hall fire door. There is currently a crash bar (mechanical) and I wish to have a version which allows the door to be opened from the inside by the crash bar BUT opended externally by an electric lock activated by a coded key pad. I have the coded key pad and I just need to crash bar and lock

You need to buy a panic bolt with compatible outside access device - if you prefer code access to keys then Briton Panic Furniture has a coded version:
