HOW TO TURN ORIGINAL DOORS INTO FIRE DOORS, EASY & CHEAP

When building regulations say you need fire doors,
you don't have to replace your original doors!
Instead of changing your doors, you can varnish or paint your current doors using fire retardant paints or varnishes,
and these even come in a matt finish!

It works out around £40 per door.

The cheapest I have found, and who give you the most info, including a help line is 
Envirograf varnish or paint kits from Fire Retardant Paint

 
You can also treat exposed beams.

Check with your building regs person as each build is different
but when my sister had a loft extension, she managed to treat the original doors and beams this way and building regs passed it.

Obviously I am no expert in this field, please check with an expert before tackling this,
but I have seen so many beautiful wooden doors removed and replaced with standard cheap fire doors,
I was amazed you could do this.
