3. niche may be built only in page lines or blind places and the like, where they are unaffected by business operations.


Niches are in compliance with fire protection technical and weather-technical issues to build and operate.

5 niches have to be locked. Section 3 subsection 2 applies to the access door or the door of the niche.

6. in the area of niche suitable extinguishing AIDS are ready to keep.

(2) in the area of niche may not smoked, still open flame or fire are used and no work involving risk of sparks may be carried. Devices in explosion-proof execution, which can trigger an unintended implementation may not be carried to the niches. In terms of niche manipulation work may not be made on the explosives.

4 section
