Fire doors in a domestic 3 storey house

Recommended Posts

I would advise a thumb turn on the inside so that your teenage daughter can unlock from the inside without needing to search for the key.  The Fire Safety Order does not apply inside your own private home but as its an FD30s door your may like to fit a fire rated lock. Personally, I would.

Thanks Neil. We have used all fire rated handles/hinges etc on the fire doors. 

I was just worried about the door being locked as an escape route, rather than as a means of containing a fire. She won't be locking herself in it. 

Thanks all.
