At that point just take the door out and brick up the opening, instead of this mickey mouse solution. Of course, that might require paperwork and a visit from the AHJ. And this is probably a required means of egress, so the answer would be a very firm, “NO!” James Slemmons October 19, 2016 at 3:22 pm - Reply Back away slowly. Exit building the way you came. Never return. Rick Halloran October 19, 2016 at 5:55 pm - Reply At least you will be cool as you die of smoke inhalation.(provided the electrical remains on) Rick Halloran October 19, 2016 at 5:59 pm - Reply Also noted not the first time the owner tinkered with the door. Note the shiny new dead bolt on the door equipped with panic hardware. Vince Black October 19, 2016 at 7:29 pm - Reply Feels a lot like Chicagoland. Curtis Meskus October 20, 2016 at 2:04 pm - Reply at least they put in what look like a proper electrical circuit Anthony Wan October 21, 2016 at 11:37 am - Reply They should have picked to install the unit in a window instead. My guess is that they rather cut cost and cut into a door they hardly use rather than put it in a window that requires more labor cost and possibly a purchase of a new window and blocks some scenic view, if any. Jeff Baker October 21, 2016 at 11:38 am - Reply I’m day 5 in this industry, but is it possible this door exits to a demo’d exterior stairwell and is on the 10th floor. I doubt it but just a thought. be nice, remember I’m new. Lori October 24, 2016 at 1:17 pm - Reply I’m always nice! Welcome to the industry! 🙂 – Lori Jared October 21, 2016 at 9:30 pm - Reply At least they had the decency to install a”no exit” sign. Daniel Davis October 22, 2016 at 10:43 pm - Reply At least if you put an AC unit in make sure it’s sealed up around it.
