service cupboard locks

Recommended Posts

i have a client that has an electric service cupboard. it is fire resistant to 30 minutes. the doors are perfect with fire rated hinges, intumescent seals.

my question is can he use a bolt or surface mounted rim lock to secure it. 

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot see any problems with a rim lock but barrel bolts are a no no because any person could open them and leave them open defeating the purpose of a fire resisting enclosure.
