Fire door closing and latching


Recommended Posts

7x Fire doors have just been installed in an HMO.
The property is a 1930's Laing semi detached with dividing walls made of either early aerated block or single leaf brick.

The new FD30s fire doors - being far heavier than those removed - now make quite a thud when they close - in fact the walls of the house seem to resonate constantly to the sound of closing doors throughout the day.

If closers are adjusted to a less agressive closing and gentle speed - then they do not latch.

Just wondered if others had experienced the same.
