You don’t see exit device doors without closers very often. Looks like the exit device pulls are mounted on the wrong side of the door too. lach August 10, 2016 at 9:37 am - Reply Obstructions aside it’s interesting to see no closers. Instead having overhead stops with pull plates to pull the doors closed. Haven’t seen that application yet. Ron August 12, 2016 at 10:06 pm - Reply if the doors aren’t fully closing and latching automatically, it speaks to the door sweeps/door closers/air handling issues. David Moyer August 10, 2016 at 10:10 am - Reply I don’t understand the problem. You KNOW nothin is gonna happen requiring a quick exit. Besides, the equipment is on wheels and can easily be moved. (Sarcasm – and lots of it). I agree with Charles – an incredibly large sign needs to read, “DO NOT Block Exits”. Charles Anderson August 10, 2016 at 11:03 am - Reply Top picture doors look like they use to have a closure Look at the right door top Rectangle where closure use to be?? David Sherpitis August 10, 2016 at 3:08 pm - Reply No closers but door checks. Handle is to pull doors shut. Kids sneak into games when their friends open the doors. Doors are blocked to prevent unpaid entry. We have had staff put rolling steel screens to block the doors. Needless to say we stopped that practice. Solution is better supervision and a crowd manager Joel Niemi August 10, 2016 at 3:21 pm - Reply Maybe a future edition of the IBC needs to add a sign like the “this door to remain unlocked during business hours”, for A and E occupancies – Red letters on white, 6″ high, “Exit door do not block”. Most 3’x7′ doors would be big enough for such a display Kent Krauser, AHC,FDAI August 10, 2016 at 3:36 pm - Reply And to think this is in a facility to educate our next generation? Hopefully SOMEONE took the initiative to unblock the exits during the game! Or do we sit back and wait for a disaster to actually occur? TJ Quintana August 10, 2016 at 4:04 pm - Reply I think the trim pulls were added due to the fact the closers are missing and they didn’t want people to pull on the vertical rods to get the doors to latch. DAVID FEDERICO August 10, 2016 at 7:21 pm - Reply I see this type of doors and blockage all the time in restaurants movie theatres etc. They always use exit hallways as storage lockers .It happens all the time and every time I tell someone about it they all say the same thing ya ya ya … And my response is usually ya ya ya wait until the liability suit takes place . We as professionals need to take an active part in educating our clients and can only hope they listen . When I do work in places like that I note it on my work order so that when they sign it they can see it and cannot say they did not know about it or come back to me when they get fined … If that happens.. unfortunately in this day we still wait for a disaster to strike before we say why did you not do something about it .
