Are fire doors legally required?
For flats that have communal areas fire doors are legally required and it is the responsibility of the person in charge of the building to ensure they are installed and maintained.
Do not try and install a fire door yourself, whilst it may appear to be the same as a standard door, you need to follow fire safety checks to ensure it complies with The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety)
If you have old fire doors, they will still offer added protection but with modern doors, additional protection is available and can offer increased safety.
If you have any concerns about the safety of your building then please get in touch with us immediately.
