Considering how many photos I took of doors during my Mommy’s weekend at Foxwoods, it’s a good thing I’m not a gambler. I wouldn’t have had any time to check out the doors if I was stuck at the slots. I can’t imagine what Las Vegas will be like…I hope I don’t get arrested like this guy. Now go get a cup of coffee while these 22 photos load.
Here are some beautiful gates at the David Burke Prime steakhouse:
And an interesting detail on a padded door:
Here’s an arched pair with a creative stop mounting:
And a casino entrance with concealed doors:
The man-door in this folding door acts as an exit when the folding door is across the opening, but when it’s folded, the signage isn’t accurate:
There are quite a few really tall doors at Foxwoods. The black ones below have operable transoms. The photo to the right is something you don’t see that often…a really tall door that hits the light fixture:
These are pretty:
These doors blend…the 2nd one blends a little too well for an exit, in my opinion. The 3rd one would have blended a little better with a piece of base and the closer on the correct side (INSIDE!):
Here are a few random shots. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen panics on a bathroom, but it’s still pretty unusual. The guy has kind of a guilty look, like maybe he didn’t wash his hands. The drinking fountain has no door, but I thought the sign was disproportionately fancy. And the 3rd photo shows the pesky 5″ edge channel that unexpectedly appears on occasion and drives architects into a tizzy…some wood door manufacturers require this channel when concealed vertical rod devices are used on a rated door.
And finally, these are for my friend Lloyd Seliber, who emailed me a few weeks ago with an egress question relative to a casino in Hong Kong. Here’s how the casinos do it here, Lloyd…free egress!
