A little bit of thread drift bringing in the accessibility at this point...Doors other than side hinge are allowed in specific limited cases....I'm not sure if this is about accessible exits or any exit. If all exterior doors need to follow IBC as an means of egress, doors that do not swing like garage and sliding doors would not be allowed.
I never knew this. What code sections limit the amount or location of non-side hinged doors?.Doors other than side hinge are allowed in specific limited cases....
The code provision appears to be limited to doors that are provided for egress.And this is why DPs get so frustrated with BOs. Just keep arguing a stupid point instead of admitting you're wrong.
The code can't get more clear. If you have a door that goes outside what else would you use it for? The intent is evident, the language is unambiguous. No landings required either?? And if it's more than 30" to grade on the other side, no problem according to another thread about windows.
For instance....And of course there are others in 1010, 9 in this particular section...I never knew this. What code sections limit the amount or location of non-side hinged doors?
Would a exterior side hinged door that only goes to a balcony need to follow the "means of egress" sections?
What if...WTF...Whatever...I feel like people are getting stuck on the fact that on some rare occasion, someone could possible use any exterior door for egress and finding that it needs to comply based on that. However, based on that logic, overhead doors would likely need to comply as well. Maybe even some windows.
What if, what if, what if...
There's a whole lot of drift on this thread, because the original poster has not provided sufficient information.A little bit of thread drift bringing in the accessibility at this point...Doors other than side hinge are allowed in specific limited cases....
Code may not be "less accessible" then ADA minimums, no?Lets start with only 2 MOE (from an area) need to be accessible by the IBC
1009.1 Accessible means of egress required. Accessible
means of egress shall comply with this section. Accessible
spaces shall be provided with not less than one accessible
means of egress. Where more than one means of egress are
required by Section 1006.2 or 1006.3 from any accessible
space, each accessible portion of the space shall be served by
not less than two accessible means of egress.
When they are not an AMOE they they need signage to the AMOE...
1111.2 Directional signage. Directional signage indicating
the route to the nearest like accessible element shall be provided
at the following locations. These directional signs shall
include the International Symbol of Accessibility and sign
characters shall meet the visual character requirements in
accordance with ICC A117.1.
1. Inaccessible building entrances.
2. Inaccessible public toilets and bathing facilities.
3. Elevators not serving an accessible route.
4. At each separate-sex toilet and bathing room indicating
the location of the nearest family/assisted use toilet or
bathing room where provided in accordance with Section
5. At exits and exit stairways serving a required accessible
space, but not providing an approved accessible means
of egress, signage shall be provided in accordance with
Isn't a path out of every room required for egress? Doesn't a door from every storage room and every kitchen have to comply with code for egress, even if an exit access door? Maybe no sign, no rating, inswing, and perhaps it doesn't have to be accessible, but there are code requirements at least for size, force to open, landings, and maybe more. I believe the code requires a m.o.e. for all occupants.
Thanks mtlogcabin for this. This doesn't mention doors that are not marked as exit doors so if unmarked they do not need to comply with this section.
