Q&A GraphicIn my current column in USGlass Magazine, I addressed the topic of flush bolts installed on the inactive leaf of a pair of doors.  Do you know the answer to this question:

On pairs of doors, are inactive leaves that are not required for egress allowed to have manual flush bolts?  

According to the International Building Code (IBC), the answer depends on the use group, the calculated occupant load, and whether the building has a sprinkler system.  If you’re not sure when and where manual flush bolts are allowed, check out the post on the USGlass website!
