General Office Security

Stairway doors are locked from the stairway side for your protection. Blocking open stairwell doors is not allowed, as it can damage doors, alter the balance of the building’s climate control and ventilation and create problems for security and fire protection.

Should you find yourself locked in the stairwell you have two options.  If you are near the lobby levels, you may let yourself out through one of these doors. These are the only doors that will not be locked. Or you may notify Building Security via the intercoms located on approximately every fifth floor, and building security will come and let you out.
