2012 IBC 1012.9 Intermediate Handrails. Stairways shall have intermediate handrails located in such a manner that all portions of the stairway width required for egress capacity are within 30" of a hand rail. On monumental stairs, handrails shall be located along the most direct path of egress travel.

So is code section saying stairway used for egress is required an intermediate handrail if wider than 60", e.g. a 12' wide stairway would require 2 intermediate handrails?
