    They may have just modified the previous door cord. If there are large carts going out to that cardboard dumpster, someone might have ripped the old cord right off. By putting protection around the contact points and moving the cross-over to the top of the opening, problem solved.

    Odds are they did at one point have an armored door cord (opening probably electrified after the fact) but got tired of it getting caught on carts going in and out (probably trash carts) and breaking. This was probably a local tech’s idea to alleviate that. I say this by the scrape marks on the front of the door where a door cord would hang, the dumpster notice on the door, the protection plate covering where the conduit box is on the face of the door, and the effort to raise the loose part of the conduit up. Not the prettiest but I’m sure he was under a budget and a time crunch as most retail managers (in my experience) don’t care how it’s done just do it now and don’t you dare go over the NTE.

    Not saying there wasn’t a better way to solve the problem, but it might have been the best they could do in the circumstance (if it is the way I’m seeing it).

    What is wrong with routing the transfer at the top and then down the door internally? Looks like a HM door to me. Simple solution and clean.

    I agree with the carts being a problem, too bad they didn’t just use an EPT or EL-Hinge in the first place.

    What is it they say (by the way who are They) “Necessity is the Mother of invention”.
