||2009 IBC Solving Means of Egress
|Objectives||Upon completion of this workshop you will be better able to:
– Remote location of doors and exits.
– Exit access travel distance.
– Common paths of egress travel.
– Egress through adjoining spaces.
- List and describe each of the three parts of a means of egress.
- Identify the seven fundamental means of egress design issues.
- Calculate the occupant load and determine the required means of egress capacity.
- Determine the required number of exits.
- Determine the requirements for arrangement of the means of egress facilities including:
- Determine the requirements for fire-resistance-rated construction for egress elements.
- Determine the requirements for design of egress elements.
- Determine requirements for door hardware.
- Determine requirements for locations and amounts of means of egress lighting and signage.
- Evaluate the adequacy of a horizontal exit as part of a means of egress plan.
- Evaluate the means of egress in assembly spaces.
- Determine requirements for exit access widths in smoke-protected assembly seating.
- Evaluate the adequacy of accessible means of egress
|Description||The 2009 IBC® Solving Means of Egress in Commercial Buildings seminar provides participants with the requirements for means of egress. Plans for a 4-story commercial building are provided to allow participants the opportunity to practice problem solving related to each egress issue. |
