Fire exit off trampoline

2 posts in this topic

Hi

I work in a trampoline park in Aberdeen we have a soft play area on a platform next to stairs some of our customers are concerned that the stairs have no gate on them and under 5 year olds can fall down the stairs. I am told that the stairs are classed as emergency stairs and must remain open but I am wondering if it's possible and legal and within regulations that I can put a removable baby gate or guard on the stairs to only be used when the soft play area is in use to stop young children heading to the stairs?

Thanks

Kim

A simple fastening not requiring a key or code and ideally a single action to release is the usual requirement - it's not impossible to have a safety gate and keeping broadly within these  requirements.

How many people may need to use the stair and is there any staffing based in the area?
