Maglocks in childrens residential home

i manage a childrens residential home, for young people with disabilities and behavioural issues. We are having our fire system updated and we’re asked today whether if our Maglock system fails we have a fail safe back up, we have had numerous risk assessments completed and carry out weekly checks on our system and this has never been raised or asked before as it is connected to the mains power. However today we were advised we need green push to release buttons too. Due to the nature of my young people I am concerned that these make them less safe than if they were not in place. Can someone point me in the direction of the regulation which required me to have a back up to the power system and these releases. Or tell me if I do need both
