  1. You would need to know the full layout of the area where the door is located, both sides of the door.
  2. I could not give a definitive answer without knowing a lot more, but by the sound of it, I would not be in favour of the proposals.
  3. Check out page 27 and 29 of Fire safety of furniture and furnishings in the home A Guide to the UK Regulations which may be difficult to understand so I would suggest you contact FIRA.
  4. Approximately 4 to 5 years subject to a test
  5. If your electric cupboard is involved in fire you are likely to lose your lights pretty quickly, so it is unlikely you are not going to be unaware very long, then you are going to be glad it is enclosed to a 30 minute standard.
  6. If the single external metal staircase is used by both flats then that is a communal area therefore subject to the RR(FS)O but the FRA would have little to considerer other than the maintenance of the external, however the commercial premises below would have to consider the flats above when conducting their FRA.

  8. I would think the cupboard needs to be fire resistance to a full 30 minute standard, the detection is an added precaution which is debatable.
  9. We would need more details of the layout and what you mean by 2 standalone maisonettes.
  10. The labels he sent are display labels and not permanent labels as they should be, if the manufacturer is british he would be breaking the law and the Trading Standards would deal with it. Check out Fire safety of furniture and furnishings in the home A Guide to the UK Regulations FIRA
  11. It happens all the time but knowing why is anybody's guess.
  12. Check out Fire safety of furniture and furnishings in the home A Guide to the UK Regulations page 29, A4.1.
  13. Questions about fire doors are best asked on on Fire Doors and Accessories as this is the area that Neil Ashdown inhabits, and he is good.
