I've got a client who doesn't want to put handrails on some exterior stairs with a 3 ft grade change to get to a fenced garden area. These stairs are not a "means of egress" for the building per the IBC. The question boils down to "if you build stairs that isn't governed under Chapter 10, does it need handrails?"
