You may have to look at these Fixed-it Friday photos for a few minutes to get the gist of what’s happening. These are double-egress pairs in a hotel I stayed in recently. Instead of using a double-egress frame so the doors were in the same plane, each door was mounted on the opposite side of a double-rabbet frame. That would have left a big gap between the doors at the center, so a filler had been attached to one door which filled the gap, with gasketing for the other door to close against. I’ve never seen a double-egress pair like this before, and yes – they were fire doors. Oh – and each door has a rim panic latching into nothing. And…the doors were not labeled for use with fire exit hardware.
