CT Commercial Door Replacement – Before & After

We were hard at work at a warehouse in Stafford Springs, CT! A new door was needed for the employee entrance.

The old door had very bad rust damage on the bottom and was not in compliance with local building codes. We replaced the door with a commercial grade steel door and, to meet the required fire code, we also installed a panic bar. A panic bar is a metal bar that is spring loaded and mounted on the inside of a commercial door. When the bar is pressed the door unlatches and gives access to the outside in case of an emergency.

J & B Locksmith Service provides professional panic/exit bar installation services and door replacement for commercial properties throughout the greater Hartford area.

Panic Bars – who needs them?

Panic bars, also known as exit devices, are required by local fire safety regulations and building codes for public buildings such as schools, office buildings, restaurants, and retail locations to provide an easy way out of the building in case of an emergency.

Always hard at work, here is Sharon installing a panic bar.

If you have a question about panic bars please call Jim or Sharon at 860-678-9797.
