Still cleaning out the e-mailbox…
This one just in from Ted Wightman of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies…creative “dogging” on a cylindrical lock:
Justin Ritter of ASSA Abloy DSS sent in some photos of a really cool pivoting door at the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee. I found a couple more shots on Flickr that show the door in action and at rest, and am including those with the permission of Victor Soto. That sure looks like an LCN closer but I’ve never seen the powder coat finish do that, so maybe it was field painted over the powder coating. If you’re in Milwaukee, check it out and let me know!
The following photos were sent in by Greg Koers of Von Duprin. The key was attached to the lever control because it was installed on a 2 1/4″ thick door. Von Duprin can supply this control for a 2 1/4″ door so do not try this at home!
And a couple more from my NYC connection, Andy Olson of Reliable Glass & Door. If you ask me, the storefront doors look way too much like the storefront…I bet it’s tough to see the exit from the inside. The stainless steel door is cool…see the tiny inactive leaf?
