Sliding automatic doors


Recommended Posts

Our Fire Safety Regulations (NI) 2010 do not permit the use of sliding doors as emergency escape doors. I understand statutory regulations elsewhere in the U.K. have similar stipulations. The requirement seems to be widely flouted. I note many designs/FRAs referring to the need for fail safe operation but the regulations don’t have caveats that would support their use in any situation. 
Any views?
