Reader Photos

How about some reader photos to ease you into the weekend? 😀

Jim Lenox of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies found a rescue hardware application I had never seen before.  Instead of a cased opening frame, the door is mounted on the stop.  Is this how they used to do a rescue hardware door in the good old days?


Jim also sent this screw hold-open. I have no words.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who notices hardware on TV and in movies.  Steve Poe of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies sent me this screen shot.  This facility is local so I may just have to go over and have a chat about that hasp…

Andy Olson of Northeastern Plate Glass Corp. sent me this photo which goes along with the theme of this recent post about surface bolts and panic hardware.

From Brendan Daley of Surveillance Specialties, a do-it-yourself dogging device for a fire door.  The scary thing is that when they pull the DIY-DD out, let the touchpad and latch project, and then stick the DIY-DD back through the holes (you know they do!), I’m pretty sure the door won’t open for egress unless you pull out the DIY-DD.  Scary.

And finally (for now…I have more!), I wasn’t sure what I was looking at in this photo sent in by Eyal Bedrik of Entry Systems Ltd.  The video cleared it up.

    That rescue hardware was in my mom’s hospital room at Mt. Sinai medical center in NYC. When I went to visit her – she told me that she has “the coolest bathroom door” because it swings in and out. I, being the door hardware #diva that I am, said ‘Of course it does Mom, ALL hospital bathroom doors swing in and out’, and then I saw it (Jim’s picture) and said ‘wow, that IS cool’. Of course, mother is always right…and she gloated a little about it too, just for good measure. (See, I TOLD you it was cool…).
    Great pics in this post, I have to start taking more. I see some really cool/scary stuff in my travels around NY.
    Talk soon, Liz
