Hello Nicholas,

You may want to consider using 2.2.3.3. for your particular situation:

Operation of closures

2.2.3.3. Closures in fire separations shall not be obstructed, blocked, wedged open, or altered in any way that would prevent the intended operation of the closure.

The key for me in this sentence would be “altered”. It appears that the fire doors in this building have been altered from their original design/use.

Let me know what you think and good luck,

Joe Gardiner
