I ran across a video the other day, which highlights a product designed to notify people on the pull side of a door that someone is about to open it from the push side.  It made me wonder how common this problem is – doors that open blindly and could injure someone passing by or preparing to open the door from the opposite side.  Here’s the video:

A few questions for you…

  • Is it a common problem for a door to open blindly into tight spaces in the path of pedestrian traffic?
  • Are you aware of injuries that have occurred, or safety concerns with this configuration?
  • With existing situations like the one in the video, what would you do to solve the problem?
  • What are some other door-related accidents that occur frequently?.
