Dealing with entrance doors for flats - Gary Strong FRICS


In case you hadn't seen it, Gary Strong FRICS, Director of Practice Standards & Technical Guidance at RICS released a useful article at the end of May with some advice on how to deal with flat entrance doors.

RICS recommend that for all high-risk buildings (more than 18m in height), visual inspections are carried out monthly to ensure that fire doors are not compromised and that a fire risk assessment is conducted on residential tower blocks annually.

The article covers the basic principles, the 2004 act, prescribed hazards, operating guidance, enforcement guidance and the Building Act 1984 and you can read it here.
