Door Code Violation: Wood Filler

Q: What is wrong with this fire rated door?

A: The wood filler under the armature for the wall magnet is not a fire rated application, and therefore violates NFPA 80.

Q: What should be done to fix this?

A: Replace the armature with the correct fire rated extension.
