BDM3 Fire protection of buildings - Warehouses and storage buildings 1 - Design principles

Published

2008

The FPA Design Guide for the Fire Protection of Buildings is made up of many documents, including a number of premises-specific Sector Guides. Each Sector Guide is in two parts: Part 1 covers the design principles for a particular type of premises and Part 2 is concerned with fire safety management.

 

This particular document is concerned with design principles for fire safety in warehouses and storage buildings and it does not address all of the essential principles in detail. It describes measures and makes recommendations which, if adopted, will assist in the design and construction of warehouse and storage buildings (or extensions thereto) which are less likely to catch fire.
