WW: Hot Mess

I’m feeling like a bit of a hot mess myself right now.  I’m working on a blog post – hopefully for tomorrow, about a code problem involving stairwell reentry requirements.  And it’s not good news.  So if you usually visit to look at the Wordless Wednesday and Fixed-it Friday fails, make a special trip back tomorrow so you’re not left in the dark.

And now, from Edward Marchakitus of Cornell Storefront Systems, the emergency exit on a retail store.  You’ll be happy to know that this is the “before” photo:

    Very much looking forward to your stairway reentry post. Currently reviewing plans for an Alzheimer/dementia unit.

    Looks like a walmart door hardware

    Also if panic hardware is suppose to be there:::

    1008.1.10.1 Installation. Where panic or fire exit hardware is installed, it shall comply with the following:
    1. Panic hardware shall be listed in accordance with UL 305;
    2. Fire exit hardware shall be listed in accordance with UL 10C and UL 305;
    3. The actuating portion of the releasing device shall extend at least one-half of the door leaf width; and
    4. The maximum unlatching force shall not exceed 15 pounds (67 N).

      Panic hardware probably isn’t required by code because it’s a Mercantile occupancy, but if it was Educational or Assembly it would have to meet these requirements.

    There is enough room on the left hand leaf for another sign. Of some sort.
