The Ministry of Construction of Russia will change building codes to protect children
The Russian Ministry of Construction will change building codes to prevent children from falling out of windows. When designing, developers will be required to use safety systems that will prevent children from opening windows on their own.
In addition, you will have to strictly determine the height of the roof fencing, balconies, terraces and loggias - they should not exceed 1,2 meters. The restriction will be introduced for fencing of external flights of stairs and platforms - at least 0,9 meters.
According to TASS, innovations will be introduced at the initiative of the Commissioner for Children’s Rights, Anna Kuznetsova. Measures will only affect new buildings. According to the Ombudsman, this year in Russia more than 100 children fell out of the windows, 15 of them died.
