Fire doors in kitchen for bedsit for sheltered housing.

Recommended Posts

Looking at Approved Document B (fire Safety) volume 2: Premises other than Dwelling Houses page 23 both are acceptable depending on layout and travel distances, however who did the means of escape (MoE) must have considered that the kitchen needed a fire resistant enclosure which meant fitting a fire door.

Assuming this is a converted premises then HOUSING – FIRE SAFETY Guidance on fire safety provisions for certain types of existing housing applies and it appears they are using domestic smoke and interlinked heat alarms to secure the MoE.

Like all these situations the internet can only help and you cannot give a definitive answer you need to do a physical inspection as there are many things to take into consideration.
