Building Regulation & Fire Safety

If you are building a new house, one area that you have to seriously pay attention to is the safety requirements in case of a fire. Part B of the Building Regulations sets out general requirements for fire safety in buildings. In order to make sure that you have some sort of protection, the Building Regulation has a few set out rules that you have to comply to for your new house.

Means of escape

Fire Systems

** Please note: In new houses battery powered (Grade F) systems are not acceptable and only mains powered detectors should be used.

You should get further advice on this matter from a qualified safety consultant before you start your build.
