    I heard that running up alongside a door frame within 150mm is also considered a safe zone, is this true?

    "also not shown it is additionally considered a 'Safe zone' 150mm at sides of door frame.
    The aim being that it is unlikely anyone would hang a picture say in the area as it would over hang the door way."

    No - unless it is also within 150mm. of a corner of the wall.

    Probably why it is not shown.

    I'm as sure as I can be that that book does not say that.

    If anybody here has a copy, could they look?
