WW: What’s wrong with this “exit”?

Unrelated to this post…I need a good clear photo of a hospital stop / terminated stop on a hollow metal frame.  Can anyone help me out?

This door in a means of egress is not code-compliant.  Why not?

Unacceptable

Thank you to Jamo Ladd of LADSCO for sending this one!

    Will this work for a picture of a hospital stop? http://idighardware.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/Hospital-Stop.jpg

    This door take two separate actions to open door toward the direction of egress, and the knob instead of a handle.

    What’s right about it?

  4. Ken Grayling says:

    The panic exit alarm lock is mounted very low – would have to be knee-operated!

    1 as mentioned, Detex too low (some jurisdictions require full width bar that can’t snag clothing in an emergency evacuation. Detex used to make an extension for that)
    2 as mentioned, two actions to get out
    3 brackets for some type of drop in cross bar (is that it off to the right?)

    Assuming the knob still functions…it takes two actions.

    I love when they get “caught”.. and need it done properly per Building Department.

    Cha ching!
