Can/will someone from the NFPA define/explain exactly what is ment by the term the releasing mechanisms of a door shall not required more than one motion. IE is the turning/twisting of a door knob on an egress door and pushing the door open one or two motions. There is no definition of this term in the definition chapters of NFPA 1 or NFPA 101 nor in the NFPA terms pamphlet.

Thank you for your help in explaining this term.
