Coat hooks on fire doors

I am enquiring if you can help me find the answer to the following question.

There are fire doors in the house I am currently living in (from looking around on your website, I have no idea what kind of fire doors) and I am interested in fixing coat hooks to the back of the doors. I have checked and the screws do not protrude though the fire door.

Can you please advise me where I can find information on this, ie. I would like to know if this is possible or will fixing the coat hooks nullify the fire door status.

Thank you

If it is a fire door then it most likely part of your escape route therefore it is not a good idea to increase the fire loading in that location. As to whether a screw will affect the integrity of a fire door is open the debate and the only way to find out would be to test the door which will never happen. I would suggest you find a safer place to store your coats.
