Chicago Roof Deck Egress

Recommended Posts

I inspected a Chicago roof deck that had no secondary stairway egress. I was told that if the house is equipped with a fire safety sprinkler system that the secondary stairway is not required. I can't find a reference for this.

That's because there isn't one unless it was granted as a dispensation specific to the building (which it probably wasn't).

Hier and I have it from the boys downtown that if it's a roof deck more than one story above grade, it's gotta have two ways out. Since it was directly from on high, it might true. Might.
