The Palladium – Carmel, Indiana (July 2013)

This article was printed in the July 2013 issue of Doors & Hardware

Last year at this time I conducted a workshop for a group of specwriter apprentices at our office in Carmel, and we took them on a field trip to a beautiful new performance venue nearby.  The hardware consultant for the project, David Glorioso of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, went with us to point out some of the special applications and challenges he had encountered.  The July issue of Doors & Hardware included a case study of this project, as well as my photos from the site visit, so with DHI’s permission I can share it with you.  Enjoy!

    Its always Indiana!

    Nice pics… Thought I was going crazy when I saw the balcony exit pics.

    Do you know if those exits were weatherized in any way as opposed to a stock device?

    Looks like they would get soaked pretty good.

      I’m not sure but I usually specify weep holes and recommend a lot of lubrication for the internal parts. If I remember right the devices are directly exposed to the weather.

        They look like they would get the rain. Just wondering since we see alot of those get soaked on back delivery doors that are propped open. Thanks

    I had the pleasure to work with Dave (word man) for a few years here at FBH. This is where found his interest in hardware and decided to pursue a spec writing career. Congrats Dave on a nice project & article.
