Pop-A-Lock Barrie helps restore exit device at Smoke's Poutinerie on Dunlop Street
Brent Foster, our locksmith in Barrie was on site today fixing a paddle exit device for the Smoke's Poutinerie location on 24A Dunlop Street in Barrie..  The dead latch paddle is a simple exit device positioned on the rear exit of the restaurant for employees to leave the building in the event of an emergency.  These commercial products are routinely installed or repaired by Brent in Barrie and the surrounding area.  Brent will do a security audit to make sure the building is complying with fire requirements or those that may need an upgrade to security features like high security locks, key control, access control or locking hardware.  The fire code requirements are 
6.4.4−Locks or Latches
Any lock, latch, or fire exit hardware shall meet both life safety (i.e. single motion to unlatch) and fire protection requirements. All single doors and the active leaves on pairs of doors shall have an active latch that cannot be held retracted, unless it projects automatically upon fire alarm.
Life safety and door hardware
The purpose of the life safety codes is to ensure the means of free egress of the occupants in the building from any location in the event of a fire or other emergency condition. This includes any door between an occupied area and the public way. The building occupancy determines the need for certain types of door swings and use of acceptable hardware with assembly occupancy being of the highest concern. The wording for these codes vary depending on the jurisdiction, however, the primary reference document is NFPA 101-2006.
