Means of Escape Roof Windows

Regardless of whether you are carrying out a full loft conversion or just want to bring more natural light into your home, it’s important to ensure your roof windows are up to building regulations.

By law, all habitable rooms should have a means of escape to a safe location outside, which means that first or second floor rooms or higher need a ‘means of escape’ window. When installing your roof window, you need to ensure that the altered roof is load bearing, the window is insulated and can, in some cases, act as a fire escape.

If a means of escape window is required, then it needs to be at least 450mm wide by 450mm high and have a clear openable area of no less than 0.33m². The bottom of the openable area should be no more than 1.1m above the floor area. Only one window per room is generally required.

We stock and supply a large range of windows which are suitable for use as a means of escape window.
