Fire doors: National Building Code
« on: August 02, 2006, 07:30:11 PM »
Dear all,
pleasure to be in this forum, I am married to a wonderful architect from CEPT, we are both residing in Dubai, UAE. She is a planner, and I am am part of our family business.

One of our products is timber fire doors, rated to 30, 60, and 90 mins and soon 120 mins. We are interested in entering the Indian market to provide a timber solution for fire doors.

At the moment I understand that the BIS and Indian Federal gov't have revised and updated the national building codes as of December 2005. Unfortunately I am having some issues obtaining information pertaining to this new code. Please advise, or provide pointers, have tried the BIS, and have also got the CD but it seems to be an amended code dated 1997 only without any specifications for fire doors.

Thanks for your help   :)

Best Regards,
