All of today’s reader photos came from my compañeros at Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies:

From Tim Weller, a door which requires 3 motions (and a key!) to exit…a knob, an exit alarm, and a key-operated deadbolt.  If this is a required means of egress, the codes require a single motion and no prior knowledge to exit.

From Greg Thomson, someone’s creative solution for a backset that was a little too tight (not recommended!):

From James Stokes, a Von Duprin 22 device mounted on a gate (this one’s obviously to keep honest people honest):

And from Andy Buse, a delayed egress door with a Von Duprin Chexit and the proper signage (the codes don’t require a sign quite that big), and if you look very closely, a tiny surface bolt at the upper corner.  Why go to such efforts to install a code-compliant solution, and then slap on a rinky-dink surface bolt??

Thanks everyone!  I only have a few left in my inbox, so keep them coming!!
