It is very necessary to devise a temporary place of safety, such as when evacuating high buildings. This may be defined as a place of comparative safety and includes any place that puts an effective barrier between the person escaping and the fire.
A staircase that is enclosed throughout its height by a fire resisting structure and doors can sometimes be considered a place of comparative safety. In these cases, the staircase can be known as a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœprotected routeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. However, the degree of protection that enables staircases to be considered a place of comparative safety varies for differing building types,and is normally defined in the relevant codes of practice.
