Top problems with Fire Doors - part six

Door closers are a vital part of a fire door assembly. An open fire door, even if it is only slightly open, is not going to do much in a fire. A door closer should close a door from any angle. The photos below show some examples of poorly fitted door closers. The first is not installed as per the manufacturer's instructions and doesn't always close the door; the 2nd was only screw fitted into the architrave and it pulled the architrave off the wall.
