Internal garage door access for 3storey, 4apartment building

Recommended Posts

Hello, I live in a 3storey purpose built block of apartments (15years old) with 4 apartments and lower ground floor internal garages. We are wanting to construct two internal garage doors to two garages located away from secondary  fire escape on the lower ground floor. They would be a minimum of 6metrs away from the fire escape and would present no obstacles to the escape route. The main fire  escape is on the ground floor. Can you please advise if the fire reulations would allow this to be constructed.? We alread have a fully integrated fire alarm system with smoke alarms in the area for door construction.Thanks Bruce

I'd need to see plans however in any case the works will be subject to the Building Regulations and you will need prior approval of your proposed changes from Local Authority Building Control or an Approved Inspector.

If these are just pedestrian doors between the garage and the open air there shouldn't be fire issues, if internal to common space there would be some requirements to make it compliant.
