WW: (Don’t-)Pull Station

Category: Wordless WednesdayLori @ 12:39 am Comments (9)

Leo Lebovits of M&D Door & Hardware sent me this Wordless Wednesday photo taken in an assembly occupancy.  I’m not an expert on pull stations, but this just doesn’t look right to me…

    The fire marshal must have required a double action manual pull!!!

    So the fix

    Looks like got pulled once to often and instead of doing a legal fix, they made one up

    Looks like a GC fix the strap looks like it was snipped from a HM WSA.

  3. Terry Crump, FDAI says:

    I’m just curious…Who are we protecting when do we not mention the location of egregious safety violations such as this?

  4. Austin B says:

    At least it’s plastic and not steel!

  5. Jonathan Taylor says:

    Oh, this model just includes heat detection; after the strap melts you can activate it.


  6. Pete Schifferli says:

    STI offers various models of code compliant protectors to deter malicious or accidental pull station activation.

  7. Jamo says:

    Jonathan, like your thinking. Using the strap as a fuseable Link.
    guess instructions say, ” In case of fire, remove phillip head screws located on each side of box at end of strap, securing the pull lever, remove strap and pull lever.” then run like hell
