Lenny Timpone of Long Island Fireproof Door sent me this Fixed-it Friday photo (Lenny is not responsible for this door!).  Remember…if a fire door is no longer used as a door, the opening must be modified so that it has the required fire resistance rating for the wall (not for the door opening).

Before any of you point out that we don’t know whether this is a fire door – that is true.  But it opens from a stairwell, so there is a high probability that it is a fire door assembly.  And maybe the door is still in use, and then the question is…would you go over the railing, or under it??
