Can! But depending on your unit... you might need to get a fire rated door which is much more expensive than your normal door. :)

its ok to change but confirm with hdb or walk around your blk to see if hdb had changed fire rated doors for affected units. If ur blk is affected by upgrading, hdb might want u to change it to a fire rated door [note: u have to pay for it whereas hdb had done it FOC for those affected units years ago]. So unfair right?

if your flat is not affected by this 'fire rated maindoor' ruling then u can just change to any normal door.

Hi, my ID told me there is a 3 metres rule to this, i.e. if your main door is more than 3 metres away from your next door neighbour, you dont have to change to a fire-rated door, a normal door will suffice. ;)

not sure about the distance but my former flat was very near lift lobby and staircase but HDB didnt change fire rated door. Called them and they did a check with my unit number and said flat not facing staircase (actually just beside) so no need fire rated door.

I called up the area office itself. Alternatively, u can go down to check with them personally or even email to them. Nowadays, they're quite particularly about service quality so they would reply to emails.

I always thought all HDB main doors must be fire graded ....

no. Not all fire rated. I dunno how HDB access the distance. The staircase landing to my current unit is about the same distance as my previous unit to the staircase yet this current unit has fire rated door fitted by HDB but they deemed it unnecessary for my previous unit.
