WW: Rocky Mountain Mercantile

Thank you to Rick Fox from Colorado Mesa University for sending today’s Wordless Wednesday photos.  This door is NOT at the university…it’s a retail store.  The horizontal bars are padlocked to hasps welded to the door – likely to prevent theft.  I don’t think the door would be usable as an exit, regardless of how dire the emergency was.  The application associated with the yellow sign (a key-operated lock) would not apply to this door as it is not the main entrance/exit, AND the door is clearly not unlocked while the building is occupied.

    Maybe it is not “Working Hours” as the sign says?

    Mr. Fox should also report this to the fire marshal or AHJ.

    Rick, you had me worried for minute lol.
    We have installed doors and hardware at the university.
    This door looks familiar. I think I’ve shopped there also and don’t think you can make it out that door.

    Is that the old bucket of water trick at the top of the horizontal bar???

  5. David DeFilippo says:

    I think it should be brought to the attention of the fire marshal. Also where is there insurance provider?
    I see this kind of retro fit all the time and I wonder why? Are we not specifying the right doors for the application. Same with hardware. What type of forced entry is the retrofit trying to overcome?

    Non-compliant door knob and is that a coat hook on the back of the door?

  7. Liane Ozmun says:

    Clearly if you needed to exit thru it there would be an emergency
