Hello. I have designed 2 exits from the first story of a commercial space (separated per code). The floor is one story above grade (basement below). Once out of either of the exits, you are now on a wood deck and part of the exit discharge. You are directed toward one exterior exit stair that leads down to a public way. Am I allowed to converge the 2 exits path of travel into that one exit stair? In other words, if I need 2 exits from a floor, do I also need 2 separated exit discharge paths? Something similar to monumental steps in front of a courthouse....you've gotten them out of the floor safely but they still have to get to a public way. If my exit stair was to catch fire, the occupants have no way down to the public way, which is why I think I need to have a second path to a public way. Thanks.
