Hotels seem to be notorious for fire door issues…here’s a perfect example that was found by Chad Jenkins of the National Locksmithing Institute.  Chad wrote:

“This hotel has a laundry chute that has self-closing devices on the chute doors.  They are secured behind a fire rated self-closing storage room door (label has been painted over).  The arrangement of the door swing allows employees to use one door to prop open the other creating a chimney throughout the building.  You will also see a sign above the rated laundry chute door that reminds people to ensure the door closes.   The manager of the hotel did say they would send out a memo to their staff to address this issue.”

Here’s the condition on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors:

Floors 2 3 4

And the first floor:
