These Fixed-it Friday photos were sent by Daniel White of Top Notch Distributors. We have all seen retail doors with non-code-compliant security methods. This has only gotten worse with the pandemic and the current security issues in some areas of the U.S. In the supermarket pictured here, the manager said that others had told her the doors were not code-compliant, but that her boss said to “lock it down” anyway.
How do we argue with that? It’s one thing for someone to be unaware of the code requirements, but given the litigious world we live in, I would be even more hesitant to defy the adopted codes. What would you do if you saw cables and padlocks on doors serving an occupied retail store?
