I’ve received lots of photos lately that illustrated problems with how products were specified, supplied, or installed.  So let’s play…what’s wrong with this picture???

a) John Gant of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies sent this fire door photo.  Anybody see a potential problem here?

Fire Door with Bumpers

b) Tim Slaughter of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies sent me this photo of a closer with a problem.  Or more likely, a door with a problem.  What’s the problem?


c) Brendan Daley of Securadyne encountered this door in a hotel, and when he walked up to the door and pushed on the panic bar, the electromagnetic lock did not release.  What’s missing?

Door with Mag-Lock

d) What’s wrong with this photo, sent in by Safecrackin Sammy?

Exterior Door

e) What could have been done to avoid this problem, sent in by Kyle Learch of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies?

Magnetic Holder

f) Darren Patton of Isenhour Door sent me this one…what would cause someone to make this sort of modification?

Top Jamb Modification

I’m looking forward to hearing your answers!
