Am I allowed to paint my bomb shelter door?

Bonjour folks,

I'm currently renovating my basement and my bright red bomb shelter door and frame don't quite go with my color scheme. Does anybody know if I am allowed to paint it a different colour?

Not sure on the law, but every bomb shelter door I've seen here is a super exciting battleship grey colour. That makes me think they don't need to stand out.

Re: Am I allowed to paint my bomb shelter door?

As long as the bomb shelter still works as a bomb shelter there is no issue to paint the door in my experience (although a big target on the door is probably not a good idea

I had mine painted with the whole cellar a few years back and have since had a regular bunker spot check by the local bunker police. All was well.

Mine's white and I've given it a fresh coat not long ago. There doesn't seem to be any requirement in the law on paint... but there is the obligation to maintain the door, to keep the mechanism working, the rubber seals clean etc.
