WW: Fan Club

This is a marked exit from a dry cleaner’s.  The photo was posted on the Truck Floor Training page on Facebook – a group for firefighter training.  It’s interesting to look at this door from both perspectives…they mentioned forcing the door to enter and finding this, while I was thinking about the egress issue.  Either way, it’s a problem!

Fans in Exit

Thank you to AJ Lopez for letting me post the photo for Wordless Wednesday!

    I wonder what is behind door No. 2? I would assume in a fire, the smoke being sucked out by the fans would kill you before exiting.

    This is a death trap. Where’s an inspector when you need them? I also what wonderful liquid they are draining into the street through the drain at the bottom of the door!

    I’ve also seen this on some schools. The exterior door can lock, the interior piece is actually on a hinge and can swing open. They have used it to prevent bugs and increase the ventilation in some older school buildings.
