Fire foor auto closure device

How would you report on a home that was built in 1966 pertaining to a missing auto closure at the fire door entry from the garage to the house.

Would you report as a safety issue?

Not required when built but is now required?

Not mention it in your report?


Safety issue needs an automatic door closer and metal door correctly casketed .

Casketed. You mean if they dont install an auto closure they will need to make arrangements with the undertaker for a casket?:smiley:

Excuse my ingnorance. I have not heard the term casketed.

I guess this is not a word and spell check fixed it to a proper word .
Any how it needs a gasket on the door.

I recommend as a saftey upgrade…
