I couldn’t have said it better myself…“Mullion?  Who needs a mullion when you can just turn the exit devices 90 degrees?”  From Chris Steward of Steward Steel, by way of Jim Phillips of SBS Associates.

    As soon as you think you’ve seen it all……….. Installers are so creative! Nothing surprises me anymore.

  2. Justin Ritter says:

    It doesn’t extend half the height of the doors, so I say these are not compliant 😉

    These appear to be the same devices used for the alarmed exits in Walmarts, made in Arkansas, probably another of the Walton family companies. Creative thinking on the installers part, I just don’t see them passing any sort of code.

    Thanks for the laugh!

  5. Cda says:

    If they would only cover half the door set up would meet code

    This is really funny. As a installation and repair door company we see this kind of innovation all the time. Visit our site at http://www.tdl-construction.com Ted
