I know some of you (door closer lovers) will be very excited by today’s Fixed-it Friday special edition!
Nathan Burkhardt of Opening Technologies sent me these photos from a California office building of something I’ve never seen before – an automatic operator on a stall door, with the new style vertical bar actuators:
Jodie Meyers from Phillips-Langley & Associates saw these exterior doors while surveying a school. The old Yale closers and Von Duprin panics (1950’s?) are still working. I see some overhead stops too…maybe GJ 70’s?
David Moyer of Stanley Security sent me this photo of a nice arched door with the closer mounted incorrectly, and a rock hold-open. Time to call a hardware consultant!
Here’s another one from Richard Reichert of Major Lock and Glass Corp…
And this one from Dave Bednarczyk of Allegion is for the hard-core closer aficionados…the cush shoe support bracket is installed to accommodate the 5th screw, but the screw is sitting on top of the parallel arm shoe. What’s the point?
