Front door of shared victorian terrace


Recommended Posts

HI there - I know there are a lot of questions about whether a front door needs to be fire rated but I couldn't quite find the answer to this one!

I am the ground floor flat in a Victorian Terrace house with one flat above me that is two stories. We both have doors that exit into a shared hallway and then out the front of the house. We are jointly replacing the shared front door (the one that exits outside) and I wondered if this has to be fire rated because it leads to the stairway of the upstairs flat?

Thank you!

If it is a fire exit door (i.e. leading directly to fresh air) then typically this would not need to be fire resistant, unless it opens out on to an external escape route or external escape stairway in which case a fire door may be needed to protect occupants using the outside routes?
