Need clarification around firedoors.

Hi all,

I need to some clarification around fire doors. I’ve just bought a three storey house in Scotland which was built in 2004.

The property has fire doors fitted to all the rooms. I want to update the property inside, paint / new kitchen etc, so this won’t require any planning permission.

Assuming I accept the risks involved can I replace these doors, or do they have to stay as they are?

Thanks in advance,

If the appearance of the doors is the issue there are loads of compliant decorative timber and composite fire doors you can install - you aren't limited to a bland & plain leaf - so you could change the doors and remain compliant (although strictly speaking the frame must be certified with the door for full reliability as fire doors are usually tested as doorsets with a particular frame)
