Pair of Fire Doors
A Torbay Hotel recently refurbished had an outstanding issue flagged up by the Fire Risk Assessment. The issue revolved around a pair of doors on a half landing on the main lobby staircase. The existing doors on the landing were not compliant, either in size or design. The proprietors were concerned over the finished look but were also aware that standard fire doors, off the shelf, were not feasible because of the size issue. The only option was to create new fire doors from a ‘cutable’ fire door blank. Then the ‘look’ was an issue, so as being in a corridor/staircase the doors had to have glazing viewing panels. The proprietors decided on tall narrow apertures with clear pyro fire protected glazing centrally located in the doors. This gave ‘a look’ that was unlike any factory produced door and all compliant with the required FD30(S) specification required in the Fire Risk Assessment.
