Fire Code Friday: Single Motion Egress

by Stacey Simmons

On this Fire Code Friday, a reminder that egress doors must be single-motion exit. The pictured door would require moving the thumbturn, then pushing the door. If you need to lock an egress door, consider mag locks that automatically release when the fire suppression system activates or panic bars (exit devices) that unlock AND open the door with one motion. We can set you up with a solution that is secure and legal. Contact us for more information!
