When Chip heard that we’d be passing through Atlanta he insisted on visiting the Georgia Dome, home of the Atlanta Falcons. We stopped for a look around, and he gawked at the banks of multiple exit doors, all equipped with Von Duprin 99 devices. It was a proud moment for Chip, especially since the Falcon 24/25 and Von Duprin 98/99 were designed by the same engineers and share the Ingersoll Rand name.
And speaking of Von Duprin 99’s, here’s an application I saw tonight (NOT at the Georgia Dome). How did one device get installed so the trim was exactly on the edge of the stile, while the other was installed so that both the device and trim hang over into the visible glass area? I guess we’ll never know unless the installer sees this photo like my previous amazing coincidence.
