Re: Which way to swing door?

i think depending on how much you go in or out into a room is which way the door should be facing like if you go into a room more make it go in so you can just push it rather than pull it

I'm willing to bet that most people go into a room as much as they leave the room.:rolleyes:
The codes are pretty specific about door swings and I believe most were covered here.

This is too funny...

Are you sure that the number of people going into a room equals the number of people who eventually come out of it, dead or alive?

Thanks for all the great info people. Unfortunately the simple question got lost on basic info on codes , types of doors, and self closing devices. I should re title this thread fire door basics so anyone seeking info on this subject can find this better.

Just goes to show that there are no simple questions, or at least no simple answers. :D
