Flat Entrance Door

Guest Chris

Recommended Posts

I have a flat which is G2 listed, it needs a new fd30 door as part of upgrade works, however my door step is solid stone and planners say I have to keep, that's fine however they do not want a threshold on the door step (door step is 150 years old and has that natural wear in the centre) this cause me a potential gap under the door, that a normal drop seal doesn't cover


Any ideas

As you say, an auto-drop seal will not solve the 'soup-bowl' issue.  And a static door bottom seal will either not fully seal the gap or cause the door to bind on the step.

So there's a choice; fire door compliance or fire door non-compliance (BS8214).  In my experience, non-compliance seems to be the popular choice.
