WW: Exit – Keep Locked!

Category: Egress,Wordless WednesdayLori @ 9:56 am Comments (4)

I know some of you will be tempted to comment that the door is swinging in the wrong direction to be an exit, but it is possible for exit doors to be inswinging.  Here’s an article about door swing if you’d like a refresher.

    No I was going to say ceiling tiles not in place in a building with a fire sprinkler system

    Looks like the ceiling tiles are truly tiles, 12″ square, and the doors are 2′-6″ wide – too narrow to be legal exit doors.

    Surely they put the lock on to prevent users from attempting to exit though a substandard width doorway – while the repair order to remove the exit sign was being processed

    Do the Owners of all the worrisome “wordless Wednesday” problems ever fix them? Are there any follow-ups or after photos on how the problems were remedied?
