Close Before You Doze

When Good Morning America starts talking about closing doors, you know this important advice will (finally!) start to reach the masses.  Check out this UL test and see the amount of protection provided by the closed doors, and share it with your friends and loved ones using the Share/Save icon above…

Here’s a report from WBNG on a great demo for students…I’m so excited this is being taught in schools! Binghamton-area News, Weather, Sports

    I try to add this into every Architectural Presentation I do now… Even if the Presentation is about Accessibility… The story you did about the kids that perished and the study that showed they would not have perished had the doors been closed really made an impact on me. Maybe Allegion/ can make some refrigerator magnets we can pass out that says “Close before you doze”.

    Fifty years ago that was taught in elementary school or at least “last person out closes the door”, didn’t matter who, just that the door had to be closed.
