Condo Lobby Furniture A Fire Risk

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:

Article Summary: 

Toronto Fire Services are enforcing a provincial regulation that prohibits accumulation of combustible materials in access areas of condo common areas. This regulation is in response to intentionally set fires in hallways and corridors, with the goal to remove the fuel used for these fires, such as flammable furniture. Condo communities can either prove the furniture is properly rated or remove it, which can leave residents with no place to sit or socialize. Fines up to $100,000 for corporations and $50,000 for individuals can be imposed for failing to comply with an approved fire safety plan for the building. ADM Design recommends purchasing furniture that meets TB-133 certification, which is fire-safe and comfortable.
