WW: Life’s a Beach QQ: Gasketing Requirements of NFPA 101 What’s new? I’m going to tell you! FF: Backset Modification 13 Comments John December 23, 2020 at 8:06 am - Reply The closer cover is missing. Tony December 23, 2020 at 3:05 pm - Reply Exit device is too short. Tony December 23, 2020 at 3:08 pm - Reply Do I see a dead lock thumb turn? That is got to go. Forster December 23, 2020 at 5:43 pm - Reply Looks like exposed wires as well. Jim McDonald December 23, 2020 at 6:41 pm - Reply Definitely the deadbolt! Jerry Richmond, AHC/CDC December 23, 2020 at 7:00 pm - Reply What a mess! The existing holes look to me like this door was once equipped with brackets and locking bar to keep the door from being pried open from the outside, which also keeps occupants from exiting from the inside. The exit device barely makes it across 2/3’s of the door width and appears to be a stock length rail device for a 3′-0″ nominal door, width, but this door appears to be much wider than 3′-0″. The deadlock is the blatant violation. The AlarmLock signage indicates a “delayed egress” application and has a number “PS230”, but this product number does not come up in a search on AlarmLock’s website. Neither does the “stop sign” shaped exit alarm. On the hinge side, there is a surface mounted power transfer with an armored cable… well, armored until it intersects with the exposed wire nuts and un-armored wire sheath! So, at one time, there may have been an electrified delayed egress exit device such as AlarmLock’s delayed egress model 715. Then, they took a step backwards and went with the battery powered alarm, deadlock and standard rim type exit device. The warning signage should have been removed when the delayed egress exit device was removed and the deadlock definitely has to go. I’m scratching my head right now. Brad Keyes December 23, 2020 at 8:04 pm - Reply Depending on the occupancy classification, the dead-bolt lock may be acceptable, but would have to have a sign on the door that says the door must remain unlocked when the building is occupied. But the delayedegress sign implies another lock is on the door, but you can’t have two locks on the same door. Normally the delayed egress unlocks a magnetic lock but I don’t see a magnetic lock on the door assembly. Something is not kosher here… Jim Elder December 23, 2020 at 11:57 pm - Reply Who does this?? Presumably the deadbold was done by “a door guy” because it appears to be a HM door which takes a bit more skill. Also, I believe the Code requires the PUSH PAD to cover 2/3ds of the door width; which is not the case here Douglas S Baitz December 24, 2020 at 5:52 am - Reply that is a horrific wiring job David Federico December 24, 2020 at 8:52 am - Reply I assume by the door transfer cord the device had or has a ELR (electric latch retraction) . However the Deadbolt is not allowed under the readily openable clause in NFPA . The device is really to short to comply with covering 3/4 of the door surface ( that is the push pad ) not the device length. David Federico December 24, 2020 at 8:55 am - Reply Also hard to tell from photo but device looks like it’s to high on the door ? Steve December 24, 2020 at 9:11 am - Reply Not a delayed egress device? but has a sticker on the door, no manual reset shown, plus above comments… MICHAEL MARTINEZ January 6, 2021 at 5:05 pm - Reply The 15 Second sign is required to be with-in 12″ of panic hardware.
