unused screwed shut door compliance


Recommended Posts

I own a blocks of flats in saint annes,  I have recently decided to use a unused small room for storage,  its ground floor the room is 2m x 2m and has a wooden none fire door screwed shut which leads to an old lift.  I am having the entrance door and frame changed to a fd30 one, its entrance in the side of the building, but i am unsure of what i need to have done to the lift entrance because it is unused?

Do i need a fire door and frame then lock it ?  or it ok how it is or should i have it taken out and bricked up or fire board it.

Any help would be most welcome,  thank you for your time.

Does the entrance door lead to fresh air or into a common area  and as a fire in the proposed store would pass into the lift shaft then to the other floors that door needs to be a FD30s fire door set or sealed with materials to a 60 minute fire resisting standard.
