Fire precautions in the design, construction and use of buildings - Part 10: Code of practice for shopping complexes

Executive summary

Recommendations for planning, construction and facilities for fire safety and provision of escape routes in case of fire in shopping complexes.

Abstract

This British Standard, a part of the BS 5588 series, covers buildings which comprise a number of individually occupied premises to which common access is provided principally for the benefit of shoppers.

This standard deals with the planning, construction and facilities for fire safety, and the provision of escape routes in case of fire, in new shopping complexes and in alterations and extensions to existing shopping complexes.

It covers the measures and facilities necessary for preventing the rapid spread of fire and those required to assist firefighting, and makes specific recommendations in terms of protection, number and position of exits, provides guidance on design principles for preventing the spread of fire, and indicates the fire precautions necessary. The recommendations and guidance should, in the event of fire, safeguard the lives of people working in or visiting such shopping complexes, and should help to protect the shopping complex and its contents against the effects of fire.

Advice for managers of shopping complexes is included to aid them in making the best use of the design features of the shopping complex, and to act as a guide to designers in passing to their clients information about fire precautions designed into the shopping complex.

This standard includes some recommendations that affect the units forming the shopping complex (particularly shop units), although this standard deals primarily with the common public and non-public areas of shopping complexes, in order that an adequate standard of fire safety may be achieved in these areas.
