It’s time to clean out my inbox again!  Here are some of the reader photos I’ve received.  Thanks to all who sent them!

Denise Gorski of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies spotted these fire and egress door problems at a hotel.  I’m sure they have been repaired “without delay” as required by NFPA 80, right?

I’ve never seen this old panic hardware either, sent in by Michael Sink of Daly City Locksmith & Security Service.  Maybe I need to get out more.  In my defense, the building was built in 1929, so these were a little before my time.  🙂  Think it’s original?

And last but not least, Curtis Meskus sent me these photos of a door on the Liberty Bell Center.  It looks pretty standard from one side, but it’s VERY thick.  Anybody know why?
