What SANS 10400: Part T – Fire protection says

Essentially the legislation is concerned quite simply with the need for all buildings to be designed, constructed and equipped so that in the event of fire:

  1. the occupants or people using the building will be protected – including persons with disabilities;

  2. the spread and intensity of any fire within buildings, and the spread of fire to any other buildings, will be minimized;

  3. sufficient stability will be retained to ensure that such building will not endanger any other building: provided that in the case of any multi-storey building no major failure of the structural system shall occur;

  4. the generation and spread of smoke will be minimized or controlled to the greatest extent reasonably practicable; and

  5. adequate means of access, and equipment for detecting, fighting, controlling and extinguishing such fire, is provided.
