I don't really work on my cars much in my garage, however there are a number of solvent based materials in there. As such, I have a dry powder fire extinguisher close to hand, and a fire blanket in the house which is easily accessible.

Is it your house insurance that has stated these requirements? Could be the fact the property is in Italy (if you are using an Italian insurance provider) or that these are pre-requisites for most, but no-one actually reads the T&C's.

bense566,

Thanks. I think that makes sense as would the CO monitor.

It's a UK insurer specialising in overseas properties. These are additional provisions imposed when I asked for extended cover for building the extension.

I have never seen even a professional garage in Italy meet all those requirements! But then they smoke on petrol station forecourts quite happily...

Given that you want heating and cooling in the garage would air conditioning be a better way to achieve both in one unit. I dont know anything about fire protection.

Peter,

Indeed in does make sense, and to be fair, it makes sense in this country, but we were never told about any of that when my parents purchased their house, and the previous owner (who kept his Morgan, along with a number of industrial machines) never had any of that either!

From what I understand from military friends stationed in Italy, safety isn't a big focus! More how many can we get in and out in a day!
