FF: Fire Door

Category: Fire Doors,Fixed-it Friday,Hold-OpensLori @ 6:20 am Comments (2)

This photo from Linda Varnadore of Allegion left me Wordless, but I couldn’t wait until next Wednesday to share it.  I guess this qualifies as a Fixed-it Friday photo, since someone obviously fixed whatever problems this fire door had by holding it open for the foreseeable future.  🙁

    Ahhhh! At last a new fuseable link hold-open device! Combined with a deadbolt for a complete package!
    Sheer genius.

    Interesting mount for the closer position looks almost center of the door…. WIRE GLASS!!!!!!!

    This is completely acceptable since the cable is attached to the fire department stand pipe connection and will auto open the valve in case of a fire.
