Components for the protection of openings in fire-resistant walls, Part 1: Fire-resistant doorsets

Sets out requirements for the construction and installation of fire-resistant doorsets that are used to protect openings in walls, and for partitions that are required to resist the passage of fire. The requirements also apply to transom panels over doors, where the panels are contained within the doorframe and form part of the doorset.
