FF: Dutch Door and More

Category: Doors Gone Wrong,Fixed-it FridayLori @ 1:47 am Comments (5)

I just fixed an email issue that had resulted in A LOT of emails getting stuck in the spam filter, including notifications from my website when someone made a comment.  If you have sent me an email and I did not respond, your email may have gone into the Black Hole.  I’m (probably) not ignoring you – please email me again to follow up!

I think the Flickr slideshow is also fixed…it was working up until I told y’all about it and then it stopped, but if you click on the Flickr tab at the top of the screen you’ll be able to see the slideshow of some of my new favorites.

My Decoded Class 1 (accessibility) held this week on behalf of DHI was a great success – 380 people registered to attend!  The other 3 classes will be held in December (fire door assemblies), January (egress and life safety), and February (codes for electrified hardware).  If you missed yesterday’s class, DHI will be offering a recorded version for DHI members, so it’s not too late to catch up!  You can register here.

The notification system for new posts on this site is working just fine, but someone mentioned to me that the daily emails were too frequent for him.  Not a problem!  There is a weekly email available, which shows all of the new posts for the week.  If you’re not currently a subscriber, you can receive notifications by typing your email address in the applicable box in the right sidebar, and clicking “Join Now!”  If you need help switching from daily to weekly or vice versa, you can just drop me an email and I will take care of it.

I updated the list of available opportunities with Allegion, which are in the right sidebar just below the links to subscribe for notifications.  The one in the Caribbean is looking pretty good right now!

And finally, Mark Lineberger of Valley Doors and Hardware sent me today’s Fixed-it Friday photo.  This dutch door (I use the term loosely) was seen at the NYC Port Authority Bus Terminal.  I know it’s Friday but I’m Wordless.

    I have seen a similar “door” before in sheetrock, and it was at the Greenville, SC Airport. They had it in place to block off access to an area that was undergoing construction. Not sure, but I thought that they had another access to the area for the contractors during the construction.

    I’m speechless…

    Just a temporary construction access door, no surprise here.

    Ok, I know it’s a construction entrance. But why even bother with the padlock? It’s a piece of Sheetrock. No, wait…it’s TWO pieces of Sheetrock. That makes it even easier to kick through.

    Gotta say though, the base molding is a nice design touch.
