Lodgers v airbnb guests

I would like clarification on the differences of Fire safety requirements for having 1 to 2 lodgers in your own home, or having Airbnb 1-2 guests staying in your own home please? Is my understanding correct that Fire doors are not required when having lodgers but they are required when doing Airbnb?

Thank you

Air BnB is considered using your house as a business like a guest house, BnB etc (& is taxable income as a result) and so requires more stringent safeguards. A lodger (which is not counted as taxable income up to a threshold) is more of a private arrangement with lesser requirements (but not if you have several)
