Lobby between garage and kitchen


Recommended Posts

We have a double garage approx 10 Mtrs  x 4 Mtrs and a timber kitchen door leads directly Into the garage

we wish to build a narrow lobby / store room between the garage and kitchen about 4 Mtrs x 1,80 mtrs

we will install a fire door from the new lobby to the garage

My question is:

what materials should the lobby be made of for our own safety and to Comply? 

.? Fire retardant plasterboard / board of some type ?

You can achieve 30 min fire resistance with a stud wall 75mm thickness timber and a single layer of 12.5mm fireline plasterboard on each side and the cavity is filled with rockwool type insulation, however the fireline board and rockwool would be belt and braces?

It will require building regulation approval and as it is them who will provide the completion certificate you should contact them as they may have guidance notes to assist you.
