Door hardware - panic bars

Recommended Posts

When I I choose a panic bar for any door it gets inserted centered where the door knob would go. Is this something that I can adjust somewhere? Does the definition of all the different panic bars or guards need to be fixed?

You can find the library file here:

/Applications/Vectorworks 2009/Libraries/Defaults/Door - Hardware/Door Hardware.vwx

Just find the one you are working with, edit 3D component, set to "front" view, and move it over to the left about a foot and a half or so.

Or you can just insert that library symbol into your drawing and place it where it should go in relation to the door, class it separately so you can turn it off in top/plan view.

The latter is a good method for when you have double doors, since the auto door hardware settings fail horribly on double doors.
