    Saw this in a super market the other week and thought it was a bit odd, two "Fire Alarm" manual call points next to a double emergency exit door.

    Don't think there was a magnetic door lock, but can't be 100% sure.

    Maybe one of them is for something else or that one is not within the required regulatory height and thus another one had to be put in.


    Regards: Elliott.

    Left hand one is a much more modern call point, on a modern addressable fire alarm panel. The right hand is older design, probably from a older panel, probably now decommissioned but nobody has got round to remove and cover the old call point.
    On the other hand it could be in a shop in a shopping centre so one is for the shop's fire alarm and the other is for the shopping centre's system :p

    Ones for door locks (Emergency Door Release) should be green (or, a long time ago, they were white). I have to agree with you - it's pretty confusing!
