Do I need a secondary fire escape?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Looking for some simple advice as my local council isn't being very useful. The link they gave is just for domestic requests: https://www.bury.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=11065

I am looking to rent out a commercial unit as a cafe in Bury town centre but there is no current secondary means of fire escape. Please can you look at the rough plan to see if I would need to install a secondary fire escape or if one door would suffice?

Hi Anthony, 

Excellent, thanks very much for your input.

Obviously, I want things to be fire safe, so I will still seek out the assistance of Greater Manchester Fire Department to see if they can give further guidance.

Based on your measurements and assuming an occupancy of under 60 then the one door is acceptable.
