Fire door allocation

Recommended Posts


I would like some guidance with regard volume and allocation of Fire Doors on site.

I have numerous sites where the office based maintenance team in the past have been very liberal with the use of fire door signage and as such almost every door has a FD sign on it.

As I try to educate the site team on the importance of maintaining these assets, the realisation is that only a percentage of these doors should be acting as actual fire doors.

I have an understanding of the doors leading onto fire escape routes, kitchens etc, but  further to looking in BS9999, I am still struggling to understand the logic behind dead end situations and one route means of escape.

I need to be able to able to work out what is an actual fire door on site and what has just been badged up historically.

Is there something out that defines this clearly?
