London - Paris Welcome to your 12 day Europe tour! After the driving tour we'll enjoy dinner at a restaurant in the Latin Quarter, an eclectic, bohemian and historic neighbourhood. We'll then travel back to the hotel on Paris' world famous metro system, ready to explore the city further on our free day tomorrow!
These two documents were issued as guidance for those persons carrying out their Fire Risk Assessment of the village hall, as required under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order These calculations will also apply to any balconies forming part of the main hall when used by all persons.
The first step is to measure the internal useable floor area of the main hall but excluding the stage area at this time. Where stages are stored in side rooms and erected for specific occasions, the useable floor area calculations will have to be adjusted.
The only time you would include the stage area is, if the stage is used for a large number of persons seating or standing. The total calculable useable floor area should be worked out in squ metres.
Each unit of exit width will permit 40 persons per minute to pass through, a single width exit door, a door should not normally be less than 2ft 6ins mm wide. A set of double doors minimum Single hall escape will permit the passage of 80 persons per minute to pass through, providing all the other exit doors and staircases on the exit route, leads out of the building, providing the final exit doors are not less than mm wide.
Your calculation for exiting the hall must then be based on a single width fire exit door calculation not the double doors from the hall. We are then left with the remaining door s to calculate how many people will be able to escape per minute using these doors See b above.
Evacuation Time from the Village Hall The time it will take to evacuate all persons from the hall ; The construction of your village hall will determine how quickly all persons must be able to evacuate to the outside. There are very few village halls which will have a staircase from any upper floor that is totally enclosed in fire resisting materials to the same standards as you would find in a hotel or offices with upper floor levels.
The evacuation times for village halls will be divided into 3 time categories. With the common day to day uses of the village hall, it is anticipated that on most occasions all persons using the hall will be able bodied and reasonably disciplined in fire safety procedures.
The Calculating the Maximum Number of Persons who can occupy a floor space — Building Regulations Appendix C The following calculations should be based on having either a seated audience, predominantly standing only or, for modern dancing.
Traditional dancing will require a greater floor space per person. The floor area allocated per person is. The floor area occupied for seating is. For fixed seating you will need to allow1.
The width between rows in fixed seats, there should be a clear space of at least mm between the back of one seat and the front of the seat behind it. You also have to take into consideration, the number of and width of gangways- centre aisle and down the two sides of the hall.
Gangways should be at least 1. You may not be able to have lines of chairs the full width of the hall.
In general, no seat should be more than 7 seat widths away from a gangway. If temporary seating is provided, the seats should be secured in lengths of not fewer than 4 seats and not more than 12 seats.
Each length should be fixed to the floor. Standing and sitting in gangways, or in front of fire exit doors should not be permitted.
Summary Maximum Occupancy Recommendations: To summarise; Calculating the number of persons you can safely accommodate will be based on: A The construction of the building, B The time to evacuate the hall, C The width and number of available fire exit doors and routes less the widest setD The density factor i.
E For seated audiences take into account the width of the rows and the number and width of gangways. I am indebted to Harry Paviour for this information.
Harry is a retired senior fire officer and is happy to help halls where they need specialist advice.With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
HAMILTON is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George .
