Planned Upgrades



The layout is always in flux but especially right now as we just moved into 272 and we are still figuring out where major items like the laser cutter and future elevator go to do electrical and construction work. Feel free to propose layout changes by modifying the floor plan or one of the existing layout images. Layout dec 23 2021.png


You can use this as a coloring book for layout plan idea visualization to produce updated layout maps of noisebridge.


First Floor



  • Install Electromagnetic Lock
  • Install push to exit button(s)
  • Install exterior RFID/NFC reader
  • Install automatic door opener

There is a exterior 3' wide metal framed door as the main entrance to the space. It had been modified to only open inwards although the hinge mechanism is designed to swing both ways. There is a hydraulic damper that seems to have leaked all its fluid and is not functional.

(talk) 23:14, 26 September 2020 (UTC) re-modified the door so it only opens outwards in an effort towards future Safety and ADA compliance, the door will be able to be pushed open from the inside. This will also facilitate a mag lock mechanism that can be remotely actuated with a door opener.

The door latch mechanism is missing a lower mount bracket, however with the addition of the mag lock, this will no longer be functionally used.
