FF: Hard-Wired Exit

Take a look at these egress doors serving a large arena:

Now take a closer look.  The 1/8-inch cable that’s attached to the wall next to the pull station runs across the entire bank of doors.  It passes through a ring that’s welded to each door, to prevent the doors from being opened.

Thank you to Jon Dudley of Allegion for the photo.

    Holy crap!

    Was that wrong? Should I have not done that? I tell you, I gotta plead ignorance on this thing because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon, you know, ‘cause I’ve worked in a lot of offices and I tell you people do that all the time.

  3. James Atteberry says:

    Maybe the sign above should be changed from no re-entry to no exit.

    The things people come up with when trying to solve some type of problem, they can just baffle and amaze you.

    I cannot believe that kind of stuff still happening!

  5. TJ Quintana says:

    Well, at least they’re not chained together…am I right?

  6. Bryan says:

    I would be the new owner of a piece of 1/8” cable.

    Come on, It’s like the zip ties at the grocery store doors, push on the door and ?????

  8. Bob Dooley says:

    Need a break glass box with cable cutters in it near the doors.

  9. DAVID FEDERICO says:

    If they wanted no one to enter why not simply lock the the doors so that those outside cannot get in . And alarm the doors with contacts to a central alarm system or to stand alone alarm units … Or better yet panic alarm exit devices. .. oh but that would be to costly .

  10. Don Hicks says:

    It looks like this is a less expensive version of chaining panic devices together. Maybe the person thought that would send a message to whoever was trying to exit. Not much of a deterrent.

    Keep this one for future use.
