/ This is what using indoor training walls has done to me
1. Feel need to relieve myself
2. Walk to toilet to do so
3. Exit toilet, look left and right to make sure nobody is around
4. Jump up and grab onto guard rail of stairs
5. Chin ups!
6. Return to office
Well it's certainly improved your bladder strength! :)

I also do this on the big bar that runs across the top of the cubicle door.
I do the same. But don't need the toilet excuse!
I remember doing 1 to 5 on the wooden surround to the niche the hand basins were in only to have an extra unexpected step after 5 -
6. Wooden edging come crashing down and I fall down onto toilet floor.
7. Embarrassedly explain to secretary exactly how I managed to break part of the toilets.
You get some really weirded out looks from the "all my clothes is from Topshop and I came to the bathroom to touch up my make-up" girls...
I think if I did this on the bar that runs over the cubicle door I'd end up collapsing the whole thing.
know exactly wot your saying .have also found myself doing a traverse at my workplace recently using radiators, skirting boards,filing cabinets etc.

The Pub down the road from me has a traverse challenge in the lock-ins! The crux is bridging from the front door to the bannister then getting into the pool room.
But @OP, I do know what you mean, I've had something similar after developing some projects, verging into obsession! Discovered some nice 'problems' on a museum and a pub, and worked out a tricky traverse along the back of my house. (its a thin, reachy, crimpy line from the barbecue through the backdoor to the recycling. :)
Even caught myself a few times watching a mate playing computer games and I've been eyeing up lines on the rocks in the game!
bicycle racks seem to be perfect for sets of dips as well.
Brilliant, I've just done some. However, my strength isn't there yet. (Note that I craftily used the plural for 'chinups' on my first post without actually saying how many I can manage :) ). The bike racks outside my workplace are a bit far apart for me, though a quick check shows that I can do a tiny bit better on the narrower ones in the bike shed.
I worked at a place where one by one the jams on the doors broke from this.
Soon after 'mountings' in the form of wooden rails appeared all over the place at unusual heights for projectors and screens that never materialized.

I note that you don't make any comments as to who might have been responsible :)

that would partially explain 'worked' being in the past tense
Office door frames are slopers and fancy stonework in corridors = handy finger board.
Tried a spot of 'buildering' too but apparently security aren't too keen on that...
Might I Suggest a nice baby gate for dips. I have a completely pointless one on my kitchen doorway that serves no purpose other than me doing dips on it now :D
At college there's a ledge that runs right across "the bridge", generally pretty quiet, so I'll often find myself doing a few sets of repeaters in free periods
We have a metal frame outside at our work and that gets some regular pull ups and attempted flags done on it when walking past!!!!
Have a crane/winch in the lab next to my office the girder it runs along is perfect for all kinds of open handed pull-ups, pull-ups with arms at diff heights, hangs and calisthenics type stuff.
Thinking about bringing a medicine ball in to use down in the foundry, one of the guys in my office is a bit of a nutter (too) and would probably be up for a bit of lunchtime catch.
I sometimes feel like working on my finger strength by strangling the odd co-worker.
We have a fingerboard mounted on the doorway to my boss's office.
I was walking home the other week when I saw Alex Honnold climbing an archway that leads into my town. I had a look to see how difficult it would be and decided that it was impossible and that Alex is really an alien!
We have the urban climbing championships here soon which are insane.
I keep trying out a traverse along the outside of the building but the rock is too crumbly.
My own son thinks I don't know..bless
Just because your at work doesn't mean you shouldn't train.
There is a caged storage area at work that gives lots of options. Plus it's in a cage so feels badass. For a trad climbing feel try some stacked boxes or heavy precarious shelving.
Ceiling pipes are generally not recommended.
