    I have to fit an internal frame and fire door from the house into a garage.

    Can the door open out into hallway or does it have to open into the garage?

    cheers

    Olie,
    Is it just a fire door that is required (because of possibility of a fire due to a vehicle) or is the fire door a requirement to make a fire escape/exit passage?

    Either way, the fire door will require a self closure and intumescent strips.

    yea that's all sorted closer strips etc me personally would have it opening into garage as the hallway is quite narrow and is right by front door. Customer wants it opening out but I just wanted to check if it would effect any regs regarding fire exit (front door). A vehicle will be in garage.

    No don't think it makes a difference tbh, as it will close by itself so wont be blocking a fire exit,
