Fire Door Mechanical Theatre
(38″W x 20″H x 6″D)
While visiting Quirk our favorite gallery in Richmond Virgina, I noticed the warehouse firedoor separating two rooms. The doors are designed with a meltable link pin which when triggered allows the metal door to slide down the angled track limiting the fire’s spread. I borrowed the sloping track idea for this piece. The pulls are hollowed out and filled with just the right amount of lead shot to balance the weight of the doors so they slide smoothly down the track.
To hold the doors open the pulls have metal rings on their tops which are attracted to rare earth magnets mounted
on the door bottom corners.
Contact me if you are picking up locally and I will remove the shipping charges. If your shipping destination is close, contact me and I can reduce the shipping cost. I would actually prefer a local pickup on this piece as it will be a bear to crate and ship. Please Note: The shop will be closed until the first of May, 2023. Any orders will be shipped in May. Thanks! For Sale: $1200.00
