Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

Ships Ladder or Alternating Tread Devices in a Residential Dwelling Unit By  Russell Kopp

Can anyone comment on the acceptability of using a ships ladder or alt. tread device to access the the 2nd floor of a multi-story dwelling Unit; in a Mulit-Family Building (Group R-2)?  Based upon what I read in Section 1009.10 and 1009.11, I would say the answer is that it is not allowable, but I wonder if i am missing some sort of exception here.  Thanks for any input!
