Safecrackin Sammy August 21, 2013 at 2:09 pm - Reply You know your in trouble when…………………………… You ask RH or LH door and they say “Yes” Chad Jenkins August 21, 2013 at 2:10 pm - Reply This be logical in a corridor as a path of egress during a fire because you may be crawling on the floor to avoid the smoke. I can’t tell how large the area is beyond this Exit Access door shown in the photo but considering that it is an in-swinging door I assume that it services a small section of the building. My guess is they wanted to stay consistent with the location of the lites in the rest of the building.

Kent August 21, 2013 at 3:26 pm - Reply It came from the factory that way….it MUST be correct! Short people need to see out too! LOL! Daniel Ferry, AHC August 21, 2013 at 3:27 pm - Reply Love that logic Chad! Did not think of that. Very clever. 2 problems though. It does not meet ADA, need 10″ clear above the floor. And it is an office or classroom door as noted by the signage. Dan Chad Jenkins August 21, 2013 at 6:30 pm - Reply Thanks Dan. I appreciate the comment. The 2010 provision of ADA does require the door provide a smooth surface across the full width of the door up to 10 inches high but, that did not go into effect until recently. I would assume that this building was built prior to that mandate and did not take that into consideration. I know this looks odd but consider it forward thinking. The lites do need to be higher than 10 inches moving forward. Chad Jenkins – National Locksmithing Institute Cody Parrott August 21, 2013 at 4:37 pm - Reply The AHJ has some splainin’ to do! Jamo Ladd August 21, 2013 at 5:22 pm - Reply wish i could say my shop has never made a mistake, But we have never let a light at the bottom of a door go out. We have had a narrow vision on the hinge side get out of here by mistake, however SafetyDave August 23, 2013 at 7:34 pm - Reply i bet it was an overworked salesman who was asleep at the wheel while he was ordering it!!!at least the lockset looks to be at the right height though,it could be a daycare room,but in the years i’ve been a door guy,never seen anybody do something like that!! Robert September 25, 2013 at 1:32 am - Reply Interesting door on Apt 102B and a Rhodes I/C lever and I bet the 60 min tag still on it too, but than there is no threshold. Be good for the smoke level vision to check hall way and best of luck if FDAI is started soon. Cecilia October 25, 2016 at 4:34 pm - Reply It’s so the dog/cat can see out.
