If I had a dollar for every time I was asked to make a door invisible, I’d have enough money to buy that desert island I’ve been dreaming of.  But then y’all would have to find a new place to send your Wordless Wednesday photos.  🙁

In my opinion, these doors do not meet this IBC requirement:  “Means of egress doors shall be readily distinguishable from the adjacent construction and finishes such that the doors are easily recognizable as doors. Mirrors or similar reflecting materials shall not be used on means of egress doors. Means of egress doors shall not be concealed by curtains, drapes, decorations or similar materials.” 

What do you think?

Restaurant 2 Exit

Thank you to Kyle Hirchert of Boeing South Carolina (and Mrs. Hirchert!) for these photos!
