The door in these Wordless Wednesday photos has 7 surface bolts, an exit alarm, a door position switch, AND a rolling door.  Wow.

    someone put a lot of work in to making a bad door

  2. Kevin says:

    Prototype for the next generation of classroom doors?

  3. Jack Ostergaard says:

    Where to start?
    They missed putting a bolt into the threshold.
    Surprised the closer still works with all the extra weight.
    Bet the hinges were not reinforced to resist the 2×4.
    Is there an Exit Sign?
    Bet there aren’t any instructions taped to the roll up door.

  4. Mike Meredith says:

    You have to love the 2×4 wedged in there. Does wonders for the hinges, I bet…
    “Wow” sums this up very well, Lori!

  5. Bob Monigle says:

    …when you absolutely, positively don’t want ANYONE getting in…

  6. Chuck Park says:

    Nine operations. You have to get through that roll-up door first!

  7. Tim O'Leary says:

    Also the bulb was burned out in the EXIT sign.

    Hyannis? I would have guessed Grand Concourse

  8. Rich says:

    What door? There ain’t no door here!

  9. Ryan Pfeiffer says:

    Now this is an opening that intelligently sacrifices life safety for security! Although does that exit device even latch? Hard to tell, maybe it is dogged?

  10. Pete Schifferli says:

    A Securitech MP 4-point auxiliary Police Lock would have provided multi-point locking while one turn of the interior knob would project or retract all of the bolts simultaneously!

  11. Jeff Tock says:

    The exit alarm is a nice touch! That will scare them away!!

  12. Leonard Bankester says:

    Is this on Trump’s hairspray closet??? Ha!
