This Wordless Wednesday photo was taken in a school – the good news is that this hardware is in the process of being replaced.  Remember, if a door is provided for egress purposes, the International Building Code (IBC) requires it to be code-compliant.

Here’s a bonus WW photo from the same site survey.  I have been in MANY schools, and these modifications are not uncommon.  Hopefully the current focus on school security will mean increased attention to life safety as well.

Thank you to Kirstie Lorei and Lisa Baines of Allegion for the photos!
