Concealed Vertical Rod Exit Devices

Concealed Vertical Rod (CVR) Device: This is the same as the surface vertical rod except that the rods are inside the door so they are concealed. This is used for appearance and/or when there are applications where the surface vertical rods could get damaged such as a place where people are pushing carts or other objects through the door. These devices require a good deal of prep work to the doors so they tend to be expensive as a package. They also can be difficult to install correctly if you are not familiar with this type of device installation.

This shows a pair of doors with a concealed vertical rod device on both doors.
