Thank you to everyone who told me the website was down this a.m.! It was a problem at the server so the host was working on it. It’s times like this when it becomes evident how many people rely on the site, and that warms my heart! 🙂
Today’s Fixed-it Friday photo was found on Imgur, so I don’t know where it originated. It shows the creative use of an access control keypad to control egress. If this application was used in a memory care facility, it would be code-compliant if a delayed egress system or controlled egress system was used (assuming the other requirements were met). If you’re not clear what the IBC and NFPA 101 require for those two systems, I’ll be posting my Doors & Hardware article on the topic next week.
