Double Fire doors - Opposing Action

Good morning

 

We have a set of double doors that open from a hall into a corridor.  The corridor is at 90 degrees to the hall (you exit the hall turn sharp left).

They currently open outwards, which means the left hand door obstructs the corridor.

 

Is it permissible to have one door opening inwards and one open outwards. ?

 

Thanks

 

David

In my opion I would say NO, as people passing through the doors is an escape situation only one door would open the direction of escape, meaning you have halved the width of escape. Also one door will still block the corridor, the only answer is the set the doors back into the hall the full width of one door.
