We have both push bars and locks with breakable ceramic tubes on our fire doors leading to outside the building. We have been told that we may only have 1 means of lock on the doors. Can you please verify this for me.

Kind regards,

If push bars are necessary then it should be the only means of securing the door when the premises are occupied. When the premises are unoccupied you can secure it how you chose, providing any additional locking device are removed or unlocked when the premises is occupied. Also a key or chain board should be used to remind those in charge, that the extra locking devices have been removed and the exit door is only secure by the push bar/pad.
