Minimum Fire Door Height


Recommended Posts


I have a project where the intention is to change a the usage of an under stair room from storage to Electrical Plant and, I presume, will now require a fire door fitted, however due to restrictions the maximum height is 1.8M. Is this sufficient height for a fire-door?

An electrical plant room will have to be enclosed to a minimum 30 min standard and the door will have to be a fire door. As it will not be required for means of escape purposes but to prevent, fire and smoke spread, then the height, in my opinion would not be critical however you will need to contact the building control for their ruling.
