View Larger Image WW: Wild West Fire Exit The exit sign over the door was washed out by the flash, but it is there and it is illuminated as required. I wonder if this door would/could actually be used in an emergency. You need to login or register to bookmark/favorite this content.

I hope you said something! Lori August 31, 2016 at 10:30 am - Reply Yes – it’s the same opening. I didn’t take the photos – they were sent anonymously. – Lori Roger Piane August 31, 2016 at 8:59 am - Reply Hope you told them they are blocking an exit and please move the table. If the owner gets mad politey leave. Then it’s your responsibility to call the state fire Marshal. Action saves lives. Branden August 31, 2016 at 3:16 pm - Reply You’d have to be careful coming out the exit so you wouldn’t run into the horse tied to the post outside. jutzi August 31, 2016 at 3:40 pm - Reply Everybody be sure to check out the September issue of Doors & Hardware. Our gal Lori is the subject of the “Member Spotlight”! Great article and photo of her! Lori August 31, 2016 at 3:46 pm - Reply I’m thinking about posting it here so the non-DHI members can read it, but the article makes me sound like a hardware goddess! – Lori Bill Elliott August 31, 2016 at 3:56 pm - Reply Which you are. Lori August 31, 2016 at 4:01 pm - Reply I have a hard time with PDAs. 🙂 – Lori jutzi August 31, 2016 at 4:02 pm - Reply Well – – aren’t you? Lori August 31, 2016 at 4:15 pm - Reply No! I’m just a regular human being! – Lori Rich August 31, 2016 at 4:26 pm - Reply They would not like me as a fire marshal. Give them one warning in writing explaining how it should be. The next time they do it, inspect at 5:30 on a Friday. Tell the manager to send everyone out, lock the door and then we will discuss the violation and remedy on Monday morning when the Fire Marshal’s office opens. Lori August 31, 2016 at 4:46 pm - Reply You’re tough! – Lori David Scott Kenyon August 31, 2016 at 5:23 pm - Reply Okay – We all agree that the table is blocking the exit door (Stupid), however look at all the other irregularities. There is no exit device only a thumb latch push/pull. There is a deadbolt that is retractable from inside, cylinder outside – another code violation. This door should have a minimum 3′-0″ landing on the exit side of the door – not stairs. This door is a tragedy waiting to happen! Lori August 31, 2016 at 7:35 pm - Reply Hi David – If it is a small restaurant with an occupant load of less than 50, the door would not require a panic and could also be inswinging. I don’t think the tiny thumbturn on the deadbolt meets the requirements for no tight grasping/pinching/twisting of the wrist, but at least it appears to be the only latching hardware so one operation would release the latch. On the other hand it may be a large restaurant in which case the swing and hardware are completely unacceptable. – Lori Daniel Poehler August 31, 2016 at 6:54 pm - Reply You would also need to address the steps.
