We voluenteer in a library in which the only exit is via a automatic folding door, when the fire alarm is operated power is removed from the door, we then have to open it manualy and hold it open.

As many of us are elderly it can be quiet difficult to open and then hold open to enable people to evacuatethe area, we have asked that the door opens when the alarm goes off but thye owners are saying they will now install a push button to open the door when the alarm goes off, surley this is turning it into an automatic door again.

The owners are concerend with security out of hours if the alarm goes off.

Can anyone advise what the correct procedure should be.
