Room definition

To help develop this article, click ‘Edit this article’ above.


Approved document B, Fire Safety, Volume 1 Dwelling houses, defines a ‘room’ as:

‘An enclosed space within a building that is not used solely as a circulation space. (The term includes not only conventional rooms, but also walk-in cupboards that are not fittings, and large spaces such as warehouses and auditoria. The term does not include voids such as ducts, ceiling voids and roof spaces.)

For more information, see Types of room.
