Loft Conversion Leaflet Amendments - The attached leaflet Loft

    Loft Conversion - Protect your family

The information leaflet “Loft conversions protect your family” which was published in 2004

    highlights mandatory requirements of the Building Regulations for attic conversions including Part B (Fire Safety).

Part B and the accompanying Technical Guidance Document B was amended in 2006. The 2006

    amendments supersede those currently printed in the loft conversion leaflet.

The amendments are as follows; 2; Point 8a should now read: unobstructed clear opening of at least 0.33m with the width

    or height being a minimum 450mm. This amends the window dimensions on the diagram. 2 (i.e. 450mm wide x 733mm high = 0.33m)

    ; Point 9 should now read: ‘provide mains-powered smoke alarms with battery backup in

    all circulation areas that form part of the escape route and in all rooms such as kitchens

    and living rooms that present a high fire risk to give an LD2 system or better to BS 5839

     Part 6:2004. The kitchen should be provided with a heat detector.’
