Steel is the most popular choice material for external fire escape construction, offering strength, versatility and economy. Spiral staircases are an attractive and economical safety solution for multi-storey, commercial or residential properties.

However, spiral steel fire escapes are subject to a greater number of government regulations which have to be satisfied before one can be used. This is due to their more complex design. Here is a brief overview of the regulations for external steel fire escapes:

  • Maximum total height of 9m
  • Minimum of 1.5m in diameter
  • Design must allow adequate headroom for users
  • A continuous handrail should run their full length
  • Commercial properties with more than 50 employees must have their staircase individually designed to ensure it is strong enough to hold those numbers in the event of an emergency.
  • Maximum gap of 10cm beneath the baluster to eliminate the risk of young children falling through it.
