When to Install Fire Hydrants in an Office Building or Warehouse

From November 15, 2018, a new regulation came into force regarding the technical equipment of buildings with fire hydrants, according to Order no. 6026/2018 for the amendment and completion of the technical regulation “Normative regarding the fire safety of constructions, Part II Extinguishing Installations.”

Technical equipment with fire hydrants is mandatory for halls, warehouses and production areas with an area of ​​more than 600 square meters (including common traffic) and high or very high risk of fire.

To be equipped with interior fire hydrants, for buildings with mixed functions, the civil or production, and storage function is established.

For buildings where sports activities occur, fire hydrants are needed if there are more than 200 people in those spaces simultaneously.

Also, fire hydrants need underground spaces with an area of ​​more than 300 square meters, closed above-ground parking lots with more than 10 parking spaces and over two levels, open above-ground parking lots with over 50 places and over two levels.
