I love a challenge, and I know some of you do too. In this old mill renovation, the upper floors of the building will have apartments, and there will be retail/restaurant spaces on the first floor. The fire marshal wants the stairwell doors to close more reliably than they do with the original system (shown in the last photo). The doors are currently held open with magnetic holders, and when the fire alarm is activated, the doors need to close but the fire marshal is not requiring them to latch. How would you handle closers for these openings?
Thank you to Kelley Brothers for the photos!
