Under the current Building Regulations a fire door should be to FD30s standard. This means it should provide fire resistance of not less than 30 minutes and is resistant to the passage of smoke at room temperature conditions.

There are various other technical requirements that a fire door should comply with such as the need for a self-closing device and adequate smoke seals.

Building regulations requirements vary depending on the type of building and where in the building the door is located. You should refer to the practical guidance published in connection with the building regulations.

The Government has published advice for building owners on assurance and replacing of flat entrance fire doors.
