The Building Regulations Part B deals with fire safety. 

It sets out the requirements for preventing the spread of fire and smoke, as well as providing means of warning, escape and access for the fire services. 

It applies to all types of buildings. In this CPD presentation from Eurocell, we’ll take a look at the various requirements of Part B and the guidelines of Approved Document B, and how they apply to doors and windows. 

The CPD is intended to help specifiers understand the requirements and create designs that achieve compliance. What does Approved Document B say about doors and windows?

Approved Document B is provided in two volumes. Volume 1 covers dwellings and Volume 2 covers buildings other than dwellings. Both volumes are extensive documents, covering all parts of a building. It applies to England and Wales, but this CPD also briefly discusses the requirements in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This CPD will take a focussed look at how these requirements apply to doors and windows, including:

● Means of escape - Where escape routes should be located and their measurements.

● Preventing internal fire spread - How windows and doors should be specified to prevent spread of fire within a building.

● Preventing external fire spread - How windows and doors should be specified to prevent spread of fire on the external surfaces of a building.
