Annual Fire Door Inspections are needed!

While opening my hotel room door during a recent business trip, I immediately noticed something was amiss.  We all have our system of struggling against the door to get ourselves and luggage through the opening with our hands full.  As I pushed my room door open with my shoulder it swung open easily and remained in an open position.

It was an older hotel and I suspected that maybe the door had spring hinges that needed adjusting or to be replaced.  After a brief inspection I discovered they were indeed fire rated but there was no attempt to make the door self-closing.  Several other doors down my corridor were the same.  This is a prime example why annual fire door inspections are needed.
