TRAVEL DISTANCES FOR EGRESS

TRAVEL DISTANCES FOR EGRESS

(OP)
Hello,
Can any tell me where to find the codes relating to the maximum distance allowed to reach an exit for various buildings?  We have several buildings and their uses range from office buildings, research laboratory, communications center, and various manufacturing areas.

Thanks,

Bumpjones

RE: TRAVEL DISTANCES FOR EGRESS

The codes usually limit travel distance to 200 or 250 ft. depending if the building is sprinklered. There are instances when the distance can be increased.

For more detailed information about the subject, visit the Exit/Means of Egress forum at the BCDG for more assistnace on the subject. The address is: http://bcodes.infopop.net

The Life Safety Handbook published by the NFPA lists the criteria that most Fire Marshals base their reviews on.
