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?
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
I’m looking for a higher res photo for a print article.
I think I can get one tonight. Will a phone pic work or does it need to be with a full size camera? What resolution are you looking for?
Thanks! It doesn’t have to be super-high resolution…the phone might work depending on the quality.
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?
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.
