The Fire Escape Code
These are just a general guideline overview of different Fire Escape codes throughout the many cities and states we have worked in.
- Fire escapes are not allowed to be installed on new building construction unless accepted by local Building Department. - Interior exit stairways or ramps shall be provided and enclosed with fire barriers that have a fire resistance rating. - Fire Escape must be Structurally sound and must be kept painted. - Existing fire escapes are accepted means of egress from existing buildings, - New fire escapes can be installed on existing buildings only where exterior stairs can’t be utilized due to limits of lot lines, sidewalks, alleys or roads at grade level. (NYS Existing Building Code, Section 303.1.3) - Made of metal or approved noncombustible material. Wood can be used on Type V (wood frame) construction.
-In the future we will be publishing separate posts detailing some city or state specific fire escape maintenance codes.
