Egress Stairs

Egress Stairs are exit access stairways that incorporate an area of rescue assistance within an enlarged floor-level landing. It provides a protected path that is continuous and unobstructed of egress travel to the exit discharge or public way. The means of egress consists of the exit access, the exit, and the exit discharge. Egress Stairs do not have to be enclosed. With occupant loads for 501 to 1,000 there need to be three exits or exit access doorways, and in spaces with occupant loads greater than 1,000, there need to be four exits or exit access doorways.
