Self storage industry talks with fire safety agencies to enhance safety measures

The Self Storage Association Asia is in talks with the Buildings Department and the Fire Services Department to seek space-efficient solutions in a bid to meet building safety requirements.

In a statement released last Tuesday, January 17, SSAA executive director Luigi La Tona said, “We are proactively working with the government in order to find safe and sustainable solutions,” noting the industry is on its way to meet requirements on signage, improved fire exits, dead end elimination, and lighting.

When the FSD mandated a 2.4 meter gap between storage zones, the requirement was met by strong opposition from the industry. La Tona said they “could absolutely not meet” such a mandate and the rule would “drastically” and “negatively” affect the industry, which needs floor space. He added that up to 50 self storage facilities would close if such rules were implemented.
