Standards and Guides
Technical Guidance Document B of the Building Regulations outlines the requirement of fire doorsets. It relates to – means of escape, fire spread and access facilities for fire service. Within Document B, fire doors are referenced as tested to BS 476 and more recently introduced European standard BSEN 1634-1. It is expected that the EN test standard could eventually replace the BS test standard but at this time they are both separately tested and recognised standards ran in parallel.
