Grade 2 listed building

Recommended Posts


I am writing this post seeking advice on fire doors for Grade 2 listed buildings. I understand the importance of ensuring all fire doors are installed and maintained following the law. However, I have some concerns regarding fire doors in Grade 2 listed buildings.

I understand that there may be certain exemptions for fire safety regulations in Grade 2 listed buildings, and I would like to know how these exemptions may affect fire door requirements. Specifically, I would like to seek expert advice on the following questions:

  • What are the specific fire safety regulations that may be exempted in Grade 2 listed buildings?
  • How can I determine which fire doors in Grade 2 listed buildings may be exempted from fire safety requirements?
  • What measures can I take to ensure the fire doors comply with relevant regulations while preserving the historical features of Grade 2 listed buildings?

I am seeking the advice of fire door experts with experience in dealing with Grade 2 listed buildings. I want to ensure the building is as safe as possible for all occupants while preserving its historic features. Any advice or guidance that you can offer on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I appreciate your help.

There are no exemptions, just the use of a risk assessed approach to the overall fire safety package of which doors are just a part.

Uprating existing heritage doors is one approach - Envirograf are very helpful with that - also English Heritage have various guides
