WW: Special Knowledge and Effort

Imagine you’re leaving a concert venue / restaurant space in a hurry, and you encounter these egress doors.  The need for special knowledge and effort to operate them is only ONE of the problems here.  Thank you to Colin Watson of Allegion for always watching out for code issues.

    Hope that gets pointed out to the local AHJ.
    Granted, it’s expensive to maintain doors and effective security systems, but
    it’s much more expensive to pay out compensation following a wrongful death lawsuit.

    Yes, it’s dangerous, and you would never see me do anything like this, but I’ll play devil’s advocate for a minute…are these actually exit doors still? Is this actually a concert venue type place, or does it fall under retail/merchant in which the doors can be locked by other means by security when the building is not occupied?
