Hi Simon,

You don't say if they are timber or metal doors. I am assuming they are timber based doors, yes they must self-close and the best solution is to use floor springs and pivots. There's more information in the Code of Practice: Hardware for Fire and Escape doors at http://firecode.org.uk/Code_of_Practice_hardware_for_fire_and_escape_doors.pdf

If you use double swing hinges and not pivot hinges how do you fit an automatic door closer, to the full 180 degrees, also which standard, covers them, because they are not single axis hinges?

Refer to 'Code of practice. Hardware for Fire & Escape Doors' at http://firecode.org.uk/Code_of_Practice_hardware_for_fire_and_escape_doors.pdf   Sections 2.3.8 and 3.3.8 of the document refer to  double action spring hinges (also known as Bommer Hinges). Section 3.3.10 covers floor springs and the double action hardware.
