Here are a couple more sent by Jeff. The second one is obvious, but can you tell what’s wrong with the first one?
This exit lock was the height of technology back in the early 1950’s (here’s the patent), and Matt Beckensto of Taylor Cotton Ridley Inc. found one still in use in a Florida hospital. I have seen them locally at Harvard.
A few weeks ago I worked on a code presentation with Marc Zolner, who is the Operations Controller – Americas for Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies. He was teaching his staff about codes, which of course I thought was incredibly cool! Since then, he has sent me several photos of code issues he’s seen…I may have to deputize him!
First, a blocked exit…and can you see any other problems?
And second, a pretty common sight in hotels – a corridor closed off with a curtain, with a blocked exit route behind it!
I still have MORE reader photos to post – I think I’ll just keep going until I’m done with my spring cleaning. Have a great Memorial Day weekend and keep your eyes peeled for doors of interest!
