Every time I go backstage in a school auditorium, I see issues with the egress doors.  Either the door is obstructed, not readily distinguishable, locked in a non-code-compliant way, or modified to keep the latching quiet.  When we are specifying the hardware, there are things we can do to avoid some of these problems.  Any ideas about what could have been done differently with this door?
