Metal Fire Escapes

A metal fire escape must be safe, fit for purpose first and foremost.

Whether you are installing a new fire escape or replacing an old one, Essential Projects has the bespoke metalwork manufacturing expertise to ensure your staircase designs are not only aesthetically pleasing on the eye but also meet fire and building regulations.

We have the expertise to design, manufacture and install all fire escapes. From a single flight domestic housing fire escape steel staircase to multi flight internal or external fire escape stairwells for commercial and industrial buildings such as retail outlets, offices, hotels, car parks, warehouses and factories, we can help

When installing metal fire escapes we also recognise a potential need to install steel platforms walkways on roofs for buildings that have areas that are hard to access.

How many fire exits are required in a building?

Suitable fire exits and escape routes are required on all public and commercial buildings. Standard practices require a building to have at least two fire exit routes, to ensure prompt evacuation of occupants during an emergency. The number of exits must allow for safe evacuation of occupants, therefore depending on the size of the building, some may need more than two fire exits.

Mezzanine Floors

A mezzanine floor removes the need to move to bigger premises and uses up potentially wasted space in the height of the building.

Steel Platforms and Walkways

Expertly designed, and manufactured to a high standard, we offer a range of metal platforms with options that include mezzanine or solid steel, as well as incorporated handrails or balustrade systems and access staircases.

A handrail is an important feature of a pedestrian walkway, fence or staircase. They are both a compliance requirement and a practical aid to prevent falls and trips.
