Front Door Vs Fire Door

Peter Banyong

Recommended Posts


I have been notified by our building management; the front door to our rented property (flat in a building) is not a fire safety door because it is a UPVC none rated fire door! 
My flat’s front door opens to the street, having said, there is also a flat next door but has it’s own front door separately. We both share a common 3 steps metal stairs that leads to the street.

I’m not sure if the management is right, do I really need to change my front door and what is best, FD30 or FD60?

Many thanks in advanceimage1.jpeg.eebe6b82c2bdddd55d2784898299fc04.jpeg

I think your building manager does not understand the situation, providing it is as you described and IMO fire doors are not required. The only possible hazard would be if a fire was in yours or your neighbours flat  and the front door was left open with fire emerging  it could prevent the other persons escaping but IMO that would be a low risk. If you decide to fit a fire door it should be a FD30.
