All fire escapes MUST comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which states that it is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, that actions have been taken to safeguard people within the premises, whether it’s a school, block of flats, hotel, leisure centre, domestic or commercial property, night club, etc. – basically anywhere!
Your Fire Escape must also meet the strict legislation laid out in Part K of the building regulations.
For example, it is essential that an external fire escape stairway cannot be compromised by smoke or flames issuing from doors, windows, or other openings.
The exit route from the foot of the fire escape to a final safe space should be unobstructed and free from obstacles which even include plants and vegetation.
Depending on your situation it may even be necessary to provide emergency lighting along the whole of the escape route and even protection against the weather.
For these reasons when you’re planning a fire escape it’s absolutely essential that you get every single aspect right, your fire escape must be safe, fit for purpose and comply with all legislation and building regulations and this is where JR Fabs can help you.
Whether you need a single flight domestic fire escape or a multi floored fire escape staircase, we can help you with the design, build, and installation – all of which take careful planning and precision engineering – and all of which JR Fabs can assist you with, whether it’s an internal fire escape, external fire escape or an enclosed fire escape.
