    Appears to be missing panic hardware, which would have released the doors prior

    And, wrong hinges

    Awesome! More work for door and hardware suppliers!

  3. Bryan says:

    Now there is a well hung pair of doors, NOT!!

    Is this the Ninja training school dormitory? Next year you will see these kids dressed in black, wielding swords and breaking through paper walls to fight for the Emperor. Very high quality doors for the hinges to rip out that easily when loaded against the direction of swing. Their houses are paper, schools are cardboard (evidently) and the jails are what? (Bamboo?)

    What were they using for hinge screws? #6 X 1/4″?

    thats the difference between ANSI standards and BS/EN/ASIAN/AUSTRALIAN etc. standards – functional & strong door & hardware against beautiful good looking door & hardware.

    The doors looked rigged to come out

    These doors look like sliding doors. Which would make sense in why they flew off the track to easily. All of the classroom doors are sliding doors and when you look at the doors fall on his face you can see they are overlapping. Plus the pull hardware on the hallway doors looks identical on the classroom sliding doors.

    I agree that the doors look rigged to come out.
