Please note that BS5266 part 1 2011 Clause 6.4 states;
BS5266 Part 1 2011 The normal height for luminaires should be at least 2 m, but the mounting height might need to be risk-assessed for the application, taking into account the effects of glare, the need to be below the possible build-up of smoke in smoke reservoirs, conditions in specific buildings (e.g. heritage buildings), or to highlight specific hazards such as stairs.
Coroner's Letter to Sir Ken Knight Chief Fire and Rescue Advisers Unit
4th February 2013
INQUEST INTO THE DEATHS OF ALAN BANNON AND JAMES SHEARS
Death by misadventure in each case in conjunction with the following narrative:
“Firefighters Alan Bannon and James Shears died from sudden exposure to initially intense heat from 20.38 to 20.41 and thereafter to excessive heat while dealing with a fire in a flat on the 9th floor of the high-rise tower block Shirley Towers".
It is recommended that there should be an obligation to:
a) provide signage to indicate floor levels both in stairwells and lift lobbies in high rise premises, to assist the emergency services;
b) ensure that signage indicating flat numbers and emergency exits in high rise premises are placed at a low level to increase visibility in smoke conditions.
