Hi There
In a warehouse with 20 people, how wide do the fire lanes need to be please? Also what is the rule at the bottom of stairs? i was told the depth and width on the floor is based on how wide the stairs are?

The minimum width would be 750mm, 900mm if to be used by wheelchairs, the building regulations require, landings must be provided at the top and bottom of every stairs and the area in front of the bottom step must be wider than the width of the staircase, so the minimum must be the width of the staircase.
