Hi, I work for a Facilities company and I have been taught that there is a minimum and a maximum time that a fire door is required to close shut in, but I have been challenged by a member of staff that this is not the case. Is this correct? If so could you please come back to me with the correct time that the fire door is regulated to shut in.

Many thanks

I would suggest the closing time for a fire door will depend on the self closing device and all door furniture has a BS for each unit, the closing device is BS EN 1154:1997, check out http://www.firesafe.org.uk/fire-door-fitting-and-ironmongery/. The closing time stipulated is between 3 and 20 secs but the British Standard has to be read to fully understand the times.
