Hello I have a query about regulations for access to a roof terrace and emergency route. To access it I would need to build stairs, a landing and a ''door''. The problem is that there's not enough space for a 2 m. door. The height above the landing would be 2 m but the door/window only 1.4. I am attaching a draft hoping you get a clearer idea.
I am aware that for escape routes the door height must be 2 m. Wouldn't building stairs to access a roof terrace via a window (low door) be better than nothing?
Please note that I cannot use the loft space.
I feel that this might be a bit of a stupid question.... But I'm trying to not give up.
