It’s Wordless Wednesday again!  When I was in Baltimore a few weeks ago, I was loitering around these pairs of fire doors leading from the exhibit hall to the service corridor…

Then I took a step back and noticed this +/- 5-inch diameter hole in the wall.  The protection provided by a fire door assembly is only as good as the integrity of the wall that it’s part of!
