FF: Backset Modification Decoded: Smoke Door Requirements of the International Building Code WW: Just a little off the side Gates in a Means of Egress 13 Comments Mark Epling November 20, 2019 at 2:21 pm - Reply Some school administrator needs an education in egress and fire safety. This will of course prevent a would-be active shooter (or other unauthorized person) from entering and there is the conundrum. This is what every cash-strapped school facility (and church schools, etc.) is going to have to live with until the investment can be made in upgraded security controlled access door and frame systems, and that is what is needed here. Peter Friedlander November 20, 2019 at 3:17 pm - Reply Based on the no firearm sticker on the door, I am guessing this is a carry permitted state. Maybe the trim fell off and no zip ties or duct tape were available. But what does the conduit closest to the floor provide? The opening is reverse so the doors pull towards instead of in. And if someone desperately wanted to swim seems apparent with that no gun sticker they could just use their gun and break the glass… bill November 21, 2019 at 12:30 pm - Reply The frame profile also means it pulls out charles anderson November 20, 2019 at 4:22 pm - Reply Darn shop classes, not sure what they are teaching them now a days. Kevin Knippa November 20, 2019 at 5:27 pm - Reply Is that an electrical conduit in front of the lower part of the door? If so, this exit is never usable, with or without the pipe assembly. Lori Greene November 21, 2019 at 10:10 am - Reply Hi Kevin – Yes, I think it’s conduit. – Lori David Federico November 21, 2019 at 9:35 am - Reply Obviously they have had after hour outside visitors using the facilities. Again cost is always a factor in these make shift Jerry rigged contraptions people invent to save money. One lawsuit is all it takes to wake up and realize life is more than a pipe dream Chuck Park November 21, 2019 at 9:45 am - Reply I am wondering what that shin-height bar/pipe is attached to? Lori Greene November 21, 2019 at 10:09 am - Reply Hi Chuck – I think it’s conduit, but I don’t know what it’s for. – Lori Louise November 21, 2019 at 1:29 pm - Reply Watching a PBS show this week about college students in a 48 hour “Maker” show. The teams have to come up with a product, produce and develop a sales plan. I wish I could find it to link here. One team made a “secure door lock.” You’ve seen them, a piece attached to the door and drops into a hole to prevent entry. None of the “experts” had anything to say about codes or “what if” situations. Mike Elia November 22, 2019 at 2:11 pm - Reply I suspect that lower pipe is part of the pool cover rack or something to hold the lane-lines when not in use – regardless, it is in front of the door. LarryG November 25, 2019 at 6:58 pm - Reply I don’t understand why people keep taking pictures of these devices? A long, long time ago I simply started taking them home to add to my personal collection. If everyone starts a collection we can slowly rid ourselves of these once and for all!
