I saw today’s Fixed-it Friday photos posted by John Diaz in a Facebook group about doors and hardware, and I asked if I could post them here as a great “before and after” example.

These doors serving a high school gymnasium had clearly seen better days – they were original to the building.

The new doors have Von Duprin 98 series fire exit hardware with the -2SI option, allowing the outside lever to be locked from within the gym in case of a lockdown.

If you have photos of a retrofit to share, you can upload them on the photo submission page.
