Maxime Drouin sent me today’s Fixed-it Friday photo, taken in a chocolate museum. This is not in the US, so some of the code requirements are different…in most US states, the knob and double-cylinder deadbolt would be a problem, and based on the other photos I’ve seen of the museum, the door would probably require panic hardware.
BUT like I said, this door is not required to comply with the US codes or the ADA, so let’s focus on the kick-down holder. The purpose seems to be to hold the door open a little. What for? Ventilation? This is the main entrance to the museum, so it seems a little odd.
What do you think?
