  1. If a block of flats has a secondary means of escape - all flats have a rear exit into the garden (and an exit to the street from there)- do the flat front doors need to be fire doors? Nobody will need to pass them, if they use the rear exits. The block in question has an evacuation procedure, with a Grade A fire alarm system. Thanks
  2. If the front door of a small block of flats (converted house) has two thumb-turn locks, as in the picture, is that a problem?
  3. I think it's just to assist the cabling to pass through. There is a significant gap between the doorframe and ceiling. The door already has vents in it.
  4. Is it a problem if the electric intake room of a 5-storey office block is within an underground car park, but is not fully fire-resistant - i.e. there are large holes in the walls going into the car park?
  5. Thanks for your replies. I guess i'll have to find out more details about it.
  6. Does an electronic rim lock (on a front door) automatically fail to safety? Does it need to be tested / serviced as part of a fire plan?
  7. What about a three storey building where the ground floor is a commercial unit, and the two upper floors are residential flats - and they have a separate entrance then the shop. Would this still require a Grade A system - because it's 3 storeys high, or do we ignore the shop and since the residential units only occupy 2 storeys (plus the staircase to ground level), a Grade D system would suffice?
