I was just checking BSi to see if there was anything new around and found this new standard; I know this subject has been discussed before but I couldn't find (CBA!) the thread but thought it may be useful to know.

BS EN 13637:2015 - Building hardware. Electrically controlled exit systems for use on escape routes. Requirements and test methods

I can't wait - but I bet those cat A devices are still hogging the limelight with their 'you can't catch me out' attitude!

They are still there and fully agreed by the committee, but will now be called "Critical (Cat A). How cool is that?
