WW: Holey Hurricane

This Wordless Wednesday door is for a Florida public school’s hurricane shelter.  🙁

    Pretty sure that no longer qualifies as hurricane rated.

  2. Marcus Muirhead says:

    Morons are so creative, and they never take a break from their colossal ignorance and stupidity. When you think you’ve seen it all… just realize: that will never happen.

  3. Glendrick says:

    I suppose every shelter needs some ventilation 😉

  4. Bryan says:

    Must be steel-stiffened and no factory raceway. I think I would have ordered a new door.

  5. Jerry Richmond, AHC/CDC says:

    What the heck were they doing? I’ve never seen one door so butchered up!

  6. Rick Halloran says:

    Was that before or after the hurricane?

  7. John dalrymple says:

    Proof that you can take a perfectly good door and ruin it.

  8. Diana Morton says:

    I agree. No Race way and they had a HOLE lot of trouble pulling the wires through. LOL

  9. Daniel Poehler says:

    This door has obviously gone through several retrofits and the Owner should be advised to start anew with door and frame along with the hardware.

  10. LachSr says:

    I hope they get a new door. With those holes in it I would think it’s structurally unsound now.

  11. Jared says:

    Aside from the “raceway” how many wires do they need to get to that trim?? Am I missing something. I use to route EL trim power through the small space between the baseplate and extruded aluminum.

  12. Elizabeth says:

    Lite kit in the door? I’m from the Midwest so I don’t design for hurricanes, so that doesn’t make much sense to me.

  13. Kent Krauser, AHC,FDAI says:

    Why didn’t the installer simply run the wires down the channel of the exit device in lieu of inside the door that wasn’t prepped with a raceway? He probably is one of those highly qualified installers south Florida is famous for having! Yep, probably been installin dem vandupers for 30 years or more! Good grief!
