View Larger Image FF: Light Duty Hold-Open 3 Comments ⬇ Thank you to Jack Ostergaard of Healy, Bender, and Associates for sending today’s Fixed-it Friday photo. This problem-solving application was found in a school, but at least the door is not fire-rated (even though it has wired glass). You need to login or register to bookmark/favorite this content.

Looks like quite an old installation- note the slot head screws on the hinges the and traditional, or “pot-belly”, door closer with corner bracket. Odd that the vestibule door is LHRB and leads directly to the exterior exit door which is RHRB. Usually, the doors, in this application, swing the same. Somebody wasn’t paying attention to detail!

The friction hold open arms are a PITA to keep working properly, particularly on exterior doors with a high frequency of operation. This also applies to other makes as well as Norton. The LCN Cush-N-Stop® or similar type arm with a positive hold open device is a better choice IMHO.
