Fire door positions

Recommended Posts

Good morning,

In a small office block there is a fire door leading onto a stairwell. This door opens out and is located towards the corner of the stairwell. If I want to rejig the layout of the floor and put another door in the wall where the existing door opens onto, what is the minimum distance along that wall from the existing door will the new one have to be. Many thanks

Providing the doors leaves do not create an obstruction and open in an acceptable direction there are no required distance the doors need to be apart, However for door widths when calculating the means of escape you would have to treat the doors as one door because of the 45o rule.
