CG-EX Installation Guide

Compatibility

The OpenEdge CG-EX is Exit Bar compatible.  The lock retrofits VON DUPRIN 99, Cal-Royal 98 and all the copycats of that same footprint. The unit is flexible, comes with two backplates and can accommodate most major brands. In the event of an off-brand device, a professional installer using the appropriate cover and mounting plates can install this unit with most ANY RIM DEVICE.

Please note, the CG-EX is NOT COMPATIBLE with any vertical rod device at this time.
