Deputy Jeff Tock of Allegion found this “emergency exit” while he was out antiquing. I wonder how building occupants are supposed to exit in an emergency…I guess the store is not expecting one to occur.

And that padlock is in addition to the deadbolt on the door itself. I guess one antique you CAN’T buy in that shop is the one that goes by the name “common sense”. 🙁
Is the antique retailer a renter in a strip center or the owner of the building? Is there a landlord to be held accountable? Was the gate part of the original architecture or was it added by the retailer, or landlord? Or is this a mistake by the architect/designer?
All of the Wordless Wednesday articles are obvious examples of bad and or dangerous situations. Would it be possible to take this journalism a step farther by giving some narrative on how the problem evolved?
Hi Daniel –
I would love to write more about how these problems evolved, but it’s almost impossible to get that information.
As this is a Antique shop they may be still following the Antique Codes 🙂
Good one Salim.
Well at least they are using a good solid pad Lock assuring no one gets in (or out). And “the door” is not blocked from use. Give Deputy Dog (Tock) and Biscuit for sniffing out that find.
