  1. We are carrying out work to bring firedoors up to standard, following a FRA, many of the fire door keep shut signs are 1950mm heigh, this has not been picked up on the FRA, should they not be at 1500mm to 1600mm eye level.
  2. We are carrying out work to bring firedoors up to standard, following a FRA, many of the hinges in this 10 year old apartment block have oil leaking from the hinges, mostly on corridor doors heavily used. Should we be changing these or are they okay ?
  3. Hi Could you tell me the maximum spacings for the fixing of a fire door frame . I usually come 150mm from top and the bottom, put one in the centre and split the difference of the other two. Making that five fixings per side. I have been told by another installer that new regulations are 100mm max top and bottom and 450mm max spacings centre to centre. Are there any different regulations for fd30, fd60 etc Many thanks

    Mr

    Hi Thank you for your reply. There were fire door stickers on the top of the door, but not stuck very well to the raw chipboard core. The door was 54mm thick with a vision panel. The door was fitted in a new built warehouse, between the warehouse and the dispatch area. I was concerned about the swelling of the chipboard from dampness at the bottom and the top. The door was purchased from a large reputable supplier. I have photos of the stickers on the door, thought it might be embarrassing for the company involved to post them. Many thanks
