Explain the Scottish Technical Standards, Section 2 – Fire

Similar principles to the England & Wales Building Regulations are applied by the Scottish Technical Standards, in respect of roof coverings.

BS476 ratings are used to form ‘Low’, ‘Medium’ and ‘High’ vulnerability categories for the fire performance of roof coverings. These vulnerability categories are then used to designate separation distances between roofs and adjacent boundaries.

Please refer to Section 2.8.1 of the Scottish Technical Handbook for further clarification of these criteria.
