Types of Fire Escapes
FIRE ESCAPE: an emergency means of egress from a building consisting of metal balconies on the outside of a building connected by ladders to each other and to the ground. Some fire escapes have a ladder from the top floor balcony to the roof.
DROP DOWN LADDER: a vertical ladder normally held in the "up" position at the second floor balcony of the fire escape by a hook. When this ladder is to be used, the hook is released and the drop ladder is lowered or dropped to the ground.
GOOSENECK LADDER: a vertical ladder, the side rails of which are curved at the top, used between the top floor balcony of a fire escape and the roof.
PARTY WALL BALCONY: a structure built as an emergency means of egress from a building which will afford horizontal access to an adjoining building or apartment separated by a fire wall. They do not have ladders to ascend or descend from floor to floor or to the roof.
EXTERIOR STAIRWAY: a semi-enclosed means of egress serving all floors with landings at each floor. Entry is through a doorway instead of a window.
