Fire Code Violation: Multiple Door Locks

Wrong Door

There are multiple locks on the door in the photo.

According to 7.2.1.5.9.2 the releasing mechanism shall open the door leaf with no more than one releasing operation, unless otherwise specified in 7.2.1.5.9.3 and 7.2.1.5.9.4.

Sometimes fire code violations are obvious, and sometimes they’re not. Before your next building inspection, give us a call.
