I have been told I need to replace a 30-min fire door (it’s a door in a communal hallway leading to an empty basement which is completely closed off and locked) with a 60-min fire door.
Is this actually necessary? Due to the age of the building (Grand 2 listed) fitting a 60-min fire door will require a major upheaval as this will be clearly thicker than the existing 30-min one in situ plus is not a standard door shape/size – the existing frame will need removing the whole wall replastering/filling/battoning and the stairs leading down into the basement readjusted as the door opens straight onto stairs.
Could I still fulfil the 60-min requirement by insulating the existing door with fire boarding on either side?
Not trying to avoid carrying out safety measures – just more viable ways to achieve the standard while taking into consideration the complexity of the fabric of the property.
