Jim Elder of Secured Design not only saw this situation and sent me these Wordless Wednesday photos, he alerted employees of the store about the problem.  Kudos to Jim!

Doors of Asheville, NC

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably remember that I often take my family on a long road trip during the summer, and work from various locations along the way (remember Chip Falcon’s Road Trip?).  When I started iDigHardware, my oldest daughter was 7, and on this summer’s road trip we’re looking at colleges for her!  EEEK!

I always find some amazing doors to share, and today I have SO MANY!  We spent part of last week in Asheville, North Carolina, which is a really cool city.  Lots of art, music, restaurants, breweries, and some great doors!  Enjoy!

We saw a few code issues…

  

  

  

^This one (above) is either a mag-lock with a door-hardware release switch and an extra push button, or a sensor-release mag-lock that’s missing the sensor.

Pretty gates…

  

Big doors (and big pulls!)…

  

Beautiful and funky details…

  

 

And one of my favorite things…fabulous painted doors!

Sharing is Caring

When I started this website, my husband urged me to STOP telling everyone everything I knew, or I would become irrelevant.  Actually, I would love for the level of code awareness in the industry to increase so much that I’m not needed any more, but so far my husband doesn’t have to worry.  A few weeks ago one of my posts was shared on Reddit and then turned up on various media sites, so that was exciting, but much of the world has a lot to learn about doors.

Many people have asked if they can share my content in their newsletters, on their blogs, or in hard copy.  In my quest to become irrelevant before I reach retirement age, I say YES!  Share this information far and wide!  I only ask that you do 3 things:

  1. If I’m the creator, reference me (Lori Greene) as the author.  If it’s content created by someone else, get in touch with me before sharing with a group.
  2. Cite the source of the material as iDigHardware by Allegion, and link back to iDigHardware.com.  If you can include a link to the Allegion website, that would be great too!
  3. Tell me what you published and where, so I can get an idea of what kind of information is being shared, and with who.  Obviously you don’t need to do this when you share a link with your coworker or your sister…just when you share it with a group of people – like in a newsletter.

To make Step 3 easier, I added a share icon at the top of the right sidebar –>

When you want to share something in the future, just click the share icon and tell me what you’re sharing.

Thanks!!
