What floor is better and safer?

On what floor are better to live in the multi-storey building from the point of view of safety, convenience and comfort?

The first floor at our citizens still remains to the most unloved. Apartments on the first floors are on sale 10-15% cheaper, than on others in the same house. And in five-storey apartment blocks the discount here in general can reach 20%.

As for the last floors, in old multi-storey buildings of the apartment here too leave with a small discount. Life under a roof is fraught with leakages and to get into it through a window directly from a roof quite perhaps. However in modern high-rise buildings under a roof there is a technical floor therefore about the mentioned discounts the speech does not go. On the contrary, in elite houses the most expensive floor - the last. Here it is possible to equip a penthouse. In standard houses the most running apartments for sale are located with 4 - go on 7 - y the floor.

So what floor everything is more preferable to accommodation? To be defined, we will try to give everyone the short characteristic with its advantages (we will designate a letter D), and shortcomings (letter N):

1 floor

D. in case of serious emergency situations, type of collapses and the fires, - the safest. If at windows there are no deaf lattices, then it is simple to leave the apartment on the first floor.

H. to People not in the best physical shape is difficult to get on the floor in case of breakage of the elevator.

the 7th floor

The most modern sliding ladders which in Moscow only several pieces, higher than 90 meters do not rise. It was demonstrated by the recent fire on 65 - ohm the floor of the most record skyscraper in Europe which is under construction in the capital. Firefighters dragged sleeves on an internal ladder, and helicopters poured water from above.

For example, rope system with a cradle - a kerchief and the special lock. Well, and for low floors of an apartment house on a case of the fire it is enough to have a simple rope ladder.
