WW: Furniture Store

Category: FDAI,Fire Doors,Wordless WednesdayLori @ 12:43 am Comments (8)

Mike Coleman of Allegion sent me today’s Wordless Wednesday photo.  I know of several fires where the fire door protected the store from a fire in the warehouse; the doors in this photo won’t be providing any protection whatsoever.  What’s the point??

    Oh those are fire rated mats though…

    No because someone will be standing with their back to to door(s) so they can read the titles on the mats

    Wow…. Even if they were closed, the bottom would fail to latch.

    “Fire Door Keep Closed” what does that mean do ya think??

    Fire at the Charleston Sofa Superstore in 2007 killed 9 firefighters. Furniture store fires are terribly dangerous.

    And we thought these things happened only in the Middle East and India.
