When a stairwell door unlocks (or is always unlocked) to allow building occupants to leave the stairwell if it becomes compromised during a fire, what happens next? WWYD?
As I mentioned a while back, Mark Kuhn of Allegion will be helping me out with some code development work and other duties, including an occasional blog post. In today's post, Mark shares some thoughts on a term found in the model codes.
Mark Kuhn's latest post is a great reminder about holiday decorating and the considerations for fire doors and other doors in a means of egress. Happy Holidays!
It's official! Since Mark Kuhn has achieved his EHC credential, I will be directing all questions on that topic to him! :) Today's post from Mark addresses the question of whether to supply battery back-up on access control doors.
In Mark Kuhn's latest post, he makes a compelling argument for specifying panic hardware in some locations where it is not technically required by code. Do you agree with Mark's reasoning?

As I mentioned last week, you will begin to see some new faces around here. Mark Kuhn of Allegion will be helping me out with some code development work and other duties, including an occasional blog post - like today's post about a frequent source of code violations.
