FF: State to City College: Uninstall 1,000 Fire Code-Defying ‘Barricade Devices’

Yesterday, I read an article about a college in California that purchased and installed 1,000 barricade devices at a cost of more than $200,000, as recommended by the local police chief. The college later removed the devices, as they are not compliant with the building code and fire code in California, or with the ADA.

FF: Sharpie Seal

Ian Baren of Katonah Architectural Hardware sent me today's Fixed-it Friday photo.  This mortise lock is on a very fancy clothing store, and apparently it was an aesthetic problem for someone that the gasketing did not continue down the lock face.  So they drew it in with a Sharpie!  You'd think that if they were going to go to the trouble, they would have used a straight-edge!
