FF: Double-Strength Holding Power

When Deputy Jeff Tock of Allegion sent me this Fixed-it Friday photo of double kick-down holders, I knew what you would ask.  So I made him go back and take a photo of the label.  Yes, it’s a fire door.  The extra holder was probably needed because of the closing force – typically a size-3 closer for a 3-foot-wide interior fire door.

    “Trained” staff know they must close this door in the event of an emergency. (I’m joking)

    Those are hold open DEVICES that are AUTO closer’s that work with the Fire Alarm – they close if there is an Alarm – those are used on most fire doors and this is a great sample of hard work – Right – Not in our world right everyone –

    Looks like 2 more holes below the smaller one. Either the first on wasn’t put in the right place or it’s a replacement. And I could have sold them the rubber tip only instead of a new holder. But all I all not a place for a kick down.
