If you’re looking to extend your property upwards, it’s vital to add a fire suppression system to your property to help protect yourself and your family in the event of a fire. Building regulations cover fire legislation to ensure that properties are effectively covered in the event of a fire.
The increased eaves and height of a property should be noted, especially when in regard to escape routes and fire safety. Properties over 4.5m should allow a protected staircase to allow for a safe escape route. If you’re looking to have an open plan living space, a fire suppression system is highly recommended to prevent the potential spread of any fires.
