Thumb Locks on Fire Escapes

Guest RLS

Recommended Posts


Are thumb locks on fire escape doors ok? we have just refurbed a ground floor office building which has two fire exits (both have thumb locks to open) and the regular entry/exit door. The fire escape doors are thumb locks and then just push to open and they open out away from the building.

I always thought fire doors had to have push bars or very simple ways of opening? Any advice would be appreciated. thank you.
