    I do say someone needs a new door.

  2. Krystina says:

    I think someone had some serious anger management issues.

    Maybe this time without a mortise pocket…

    This is prrof that one of the most powerful door busting forces on the face of the earth is a 13 year old boy.

    My old boss would say,
    “Just sandwich the door with 2 pieces of angle iron and a couple of carriage bolts” And “are you done yet, we got real work to do”

  5. Eric says:

    Looks like someone used a swift kick to open the door. Hope the closer had the AVB option.

    Nice wire glass also in what appears to possibly be a school.

  7. Jim Elder says:

    Had this occur in a Vet hospital before. But it was a HORSE that did the job. Get this kid on the football field. Anyway, this is why i specified FRP doors and never had a problem since (15 years ago).

    You could probably build a laterally-rabbeted door buck to fit that custom bend.

    Have seen this several times here. We keep a 6 foot piece of 3″ steel angle on hand that is drilled for 6 sex bolts. We install it on the door to stiffen it until the replacement arrives. With an exit device, it has to go on the outside, but we have used it several times.
