Reader Photos

Holy smokes!  I guess I haven’t posted reader photos for a while because I have SO MANY piled up in my e-mailbox.  I have a really busy week and I’ll be traveling to Connecticut to do a fire door inspection, so I won’t have a lot of time for those wordy, informative posts you all love so much.  🙂  Instead, I’ll get my e-mailbox cleaned out and post the photos sent in by blog readers.  I really need to think of a catchy nickname for fans of this blog – like Trekkies (Star Trek fans) and Gleeks (fans of the TV show Glee).  Got any ideas?

Hal Kelton of DoorData Solutions sent in some photos of what happens to fire-rated doors on server rooms after I.T. takes over:

From Andy Olson of Reliable Glass and Door, a hot mess that includes a not-so-armored-cable door loop, a naked closer, and a swiss cheese frame:

From Brian Barrett of Architectural Door & Hardware of NY, a “creative” stop solution for the laundry room (ick):

And from Morriss Johnson of VLK Architects, some very tall floor stops (tape recorder is for scale):

I ran across this photo on Flickr and the photographer gave me permission to post it here.  I’m guessing this door is no longer meant to be a means of egress, because the fire escape makes it impossible to open more than a few inches.  Thank you to Alex Hansen for allowing me to post the photo.  Alex told me that he has added my blog to his list of things to check out when he’s supposed to be working.  🙂

And here’s another cool one from Flickr, posted with permission from Nessachan.  The door is located in Wheeling, West Virginia.

    Lori – as for catchy nicknames, how about “Doorks”? Most of the people I work with think I’m one for getting excited about codes and door hardware! 😉

      Hi Ed –
      We actually use that term internally for all the hardware-lovers (myself included), but I don’t want anyone to be offended. I used the term “doorknob peddler” once about 15 years ago and was chastised for it. Bob likes “Doorks”…let’s see if anyone else weighs in.
      – Lori

    Very clever, Ed.
    I like it.

  3. Amanda Wilson says:

    I’m with Edward, I was going to say Doorks but he’s already thought of it!

  4. T.J. Gottwalt says:

    I agree with Ed. Doorks works quite well, as most of us door and hardware people realize we’re a little “out there” for being so passionate about this topic.
