K222 Egress Doors

Examples of findings cited under K222 include:

  • The facility failed to ensure that a common-use restroom door had a latch that required not more than one releasing operation to open. The door had a slide latch deadbolt and a keyed lock.
  • The facility failed to ensure that the initiation of the release process of a door's delayed-egress locking system activated an audible signal in the vicinity of the door.
  • The facility failed to post the sign that is required for a door that has a delayed-egress locking system (a sign that says "PUSH UNTIL ALARM SOUNDS DOOR CAN BE OPENED IN 15 SECONDS").
