Where there’s a will (and the AHJ is flexible), there’s a way.  It’s clear that a lot of thought went into this opening, but I have a few unanswered questions…

This emergency exit is at the top of a set of bleachers in a gym.  The door is less than 6 feet high, sitting in front of it would be like sitting in the exit row of an airplane, and what’s going on with that bolt?  I’m curious about the reduction in height of the bleacher in front of the door since the resulting clearance is still less than 80 inches.

I can’t say that it’s compliant with the model codes, but someone tried hard!
