Determining the current legal requirements for the design and use of means of escape from buildings in the event of fire poses considerable problems for all professionals concerned with the design, construction, maintenance and use of buildings. Local authorities, approved inspectors and fire officers, responsible for assessing plans, also have difficulty establishing and interpreting the provisions since these are complex and scattered among a wide range of acts and regulations.

This book provides a highly illustrated, practical guide for England and Wales and takes account of the most recent amendments to Part B of the Building Regulations involving means of escape.
