The door handles on the gray panels in Building B / C / D have recently been removed, because the cover panels on the outside of the shutters in REC-BCD can become detached from the hatches. Urgent request: leave the shutters closed.

The door handles have been removed from the panels to prevent dangerous situations

As long as the panels are closed, the detachment of the panels will not present a hazard. However, once the shutters are opened, the wind may cause the cover panels to become detached and fall off. To prevent this dangerous situation, Facility Services has requested the temporary removal of the handles so the shutters can no longer be opened. Some people have opened or tried to open the panels. Urgent request: leave the shutters closed.

Experts are urgently seeking a permanent solution to the problem on behalf of the UvA.
