The material we’re most fond of is wood. You may have made that connection by looking at our name. It is a really useful natural resource and we use timbers to create a host of products for our clients. This includes staircases, kitchen units, and also orangeries. We are proud to have a reputation as one of the top names working in joinery Horsham has.
The UK’s building regulations aren’t straightforward but they are vital. They decide what the minimum standards for design and construction are. This can relate to fire protection, insulation, and ventilation. Here, we are going to look at the main regulations for joinery in domestic settings.
There’s a requirement for lowering carbon emissions and energy usage. Your structures must be energy efficient to conserve as much power as possible. Part L of the building regulations covers this topic. With joinery you must ensure windows as well as doors are energy efficient. Draught proofing must also meet the right standards.
Part F of the building regulations document covers this area. The primary focus is interior air quality but it also covers purge and background ventilation. The windows must all have the right rate of ventilation and should have the right openable area.
Part B of the building regulations looks at fire safety. In terms of joinery you may be dealing with doors or windows. Both have an important role to play in keeping the property safe in the event of a fire. Therefore the timber products you use must meet the right standards.
There are specific regulations for stairs. Part K is the document you need to look at. It covers everything from length and width to steepness, pitch, headroom, and also handrails and landings.
