Depending on where this door is located, this creative solution either creates a security breach, or indicates that the wrong lock function was specified. Thanks to Greg Koers of Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies for sharing!

Must be under construction because that’s very detailed carpentry work!
Creative for sure. Hopefully, not a fire door and just a temporary “fix”.
I must say that is the most elaborate “Anti-Latching” measure I have witnessed. As you stated obviously due to inappropriate specification, and being used at the sacrifice of other features that the door itself would normally provide like Acoustics, Fire & Smoke prevention if applicable. The client needs to address the issue which is inappropriate hardware settings, possibly a store room setting instead of a variable locking mode, if He had an IR Legge 990 Mortice lock the multi-function aspect would make it a quick and cheap fix…
I have to think this is done for a major reason _ SMOKING AREA JUST OUTSIDE THIS SECURITY DOOR _ this can be used for the internal security as it is EXIT only door to stairwell my guess from what I see. Welded edge, threshold and sweep. I also play the lottery too and no I don’t smoke but I have seen a few door wedges. Thanks
