If you regularly check this site to find out what’s new and exciting in the world of doors and hardware, you may have occasionally experienced a server error. Yesterday I asked the web hosting company to move the site to a more stable server to avoid these errors, which they agreed to do at midnight. I was very surprised to go to the site this morning and see the website for the Philanthropy Advisors of New York at our URL! Everything seems to be working now, so thank you for your patience.
And for your trouble, here’s an easy one (if you’re a hardware nerd like me). What’s wrong with this picture?

This appears to be the new WBR (with bottom rod) device which includes the LBR firing pin. LOL
A.The Doors Prep for LBR Device and Have 9827 Installed
B.The Armor Plate is too High for use on Fire Doors
Were those doors intended to be Less Bottom Rod? It looks like the door is also prepped for a thermal pin

I was going to go with
1) The kick plate is over 16″ and not labeled
2) The glass does not have a label on it
3) Glass may or may not be safety rated
But maybe the fire pin prep for LBR and a bottom rod also is a better one. But hey I am just shocked the floor strikes are in and they look nice.
I include myself in the “I hate hardware” group. I think it’s because I find there is never enough time to really understand and familarize myself with all the intricate details that are so important. Anyway, I am thankful for experts like you.
This is why I call Greg Thomson!
The fire bolt is not needed. Both doors have bottom rods. And I hope the armor plate has a label on it.
That ought to get me a nice IR polo shirt (size XL).
door appears to be prepped for a fire bolt on the meeting edge which tells me that the devices are LBR and the bottom rods & strikes shouldn’t have been installed or the doors have been installed in the wrong frame.
the door is prepped for less bottom rod
Is it the fact that they are using armor plates but nothing to protect the lower protion of the surface vertical rods? Is that a temperature activated spring bolt in the edge of a door with SVR devices?
