Smoke seal on external door
« on: May 11, 2018, 08:10:05 AM »
We constructed a small beer garden to the rear of the first floor of a pub. The garden is accessed via the landing of the stair that also serves the single MOE from the first floor. We have been asked by building control to fit smoke seal to the door that gives access to the garden. The garden is open to the air. My own notion of physics would suggest that a fire in the beer garden would be vented to the open air and smoke would not seek to penetrate the gaps around the fire door that has been fitted.

That might do Dot but most people wouldn't understand what it means.

They would if they had been to an NI grammar school or just about any school in Scotland (or university in England).

Cheaper to install a surface-mounted smoke seal (not the intumescent variety) than to argue about it...

Yes Seahorse, and the boys in NI took my money to deliver one on Almost, but then they never delivered but used my money to buy more Armalites.
