Australia is witnessing a higher population density in major cities and at the same time, rising construction costs. Together, these factors are leading more Australians to renovate their properties and unlock additional space in their attics and roof spaces to accommodate life and lifestyle changes. Designing accessibility in attics and roof spaces is a vital but often overlooked element of making the most of the extra space.
The whitepaper “Taking roof and attic access to the next level” unpacks the rising trend of using attics and accessible roof spaces in Australia and the safety risks of inadequate access systems. To do this, it delves into the safety, compliance, and cost risks associated with poorly designed or incorrectly specified systems and explains the current safety requirements surrounding these.
The whitepaper then explores design-based solutions for creating accessible attic spaces, and breaks down the key characteristics of products that can help reduce risk and deliver access systems that are safe and fit for purpose.
