    Hi- Can anyone please advise if I need a specific type of fire-resistant latch (and does it too need intumescent pads) when fitting a 30 min domestic fire door?

    Also, I guess the door-closer needs to be fire rated too. Are concealed closers acceptable/ any good? (The door weighs 40kg and hinges against a nearby wall at right angles, so a door-closer with an 'arm' may hit wall).

    On a budget, as ever.....

    Thanks!

    Is this an existing fire door, or one being newly fitted, for example to comply when doing a loft conversion?

    A supplier should be able to tell you.

    I hope not as self-closers aren't required in that situation :p

    that's why I asked...

    if it's your BCO you need to satisfy, best to ask him.
