Moscow urban planning department specialists participated in elaboration of new set of rules that regulates systems of fire security and allows the possibility to use fenced roofs of school buildings. The document is approved instead of the previous one.
“Development of requirements for buildings placement, constructive, design, engineering systems decisions let place classes on the upper floors and assembly hall on the third floor. It became possible to increase number of floors and use fenced roofs in accordance with educational process requirements. It is especially important in the context of dense urban development”, – Sergey Levkin, head of the department, explained.
All technical decisions enshrined in new Set of rules are based on research and calculations which take into account the principles of horizontal fire sectioning, provide for the possibility of security for rooms with high fire risk (for example, school wardrobes) with automated fire-extinguishing installations.
“Before approbation of this document such constructive decisions were not possible to apply”, – Sergey Levkin noted.
Set of rules 1.13130.2020 will come into force on September 19, 2020 and will be applied to new designed and reconstructed school buildings.
