Open plan sign-off for homes over two stories
Light-filled, open-plan living spaces can change how you interact with your home, but they must be designed with fire safety and Building Regulations in mind.
If you want a genuinely open-plan living area, which means your stairs are exposed to the living room or even kitchen, building regulations require a safe passage through open-plan spaces adjacent to stairs.
Sprinklers are associated with flooding your home, so most homeowners would probably think twice about putting them in to achieve this. Automist is far less intrusive, uses ten times less water, and has a fire engineering justification for use in open-plan houses.
