  1. Hi Tom, thanks for your advice. I have considered mortice locks but hoped I could fit something that didn't take so long to fit as there are 24 doors. Consider also that they are only for riser and electrical cupboards and are not a throughway. I therefore wondered whether Rim Locks might be suitable? They would be fitted to the inside of the door and therefore would benefit from the fire protection afforded by the door itself? Might these be suitable?
  2. Hi, I'm fitting some FD30 fire doors to some electrical and riser cupboards in the communal areas of a block of flats. The FRA stated that they should be BS EN 1634‐1 compliant. As they are not used for access they just have to be kept locked shut, with a sign saying 'Fire Door Keep Locked Shut', I had hoped to use Yale 8002 security bolts but realise now that they are not fire rated. I spoke to an ironmongers who recommended I use night latches! I really don't think these are very practical considering there are a number of locks, but also it seems excessive. I therefore wonder if anyone could recommend a suitable simple to fit lock which would meet the required standard? Many thanks in advance.
