What type of emergency egress requirement is called

Customer Question

What type of emergency egress requirement is called for on NanaWalls (all glass) when they separate the interior of the club house with the pool in a multi-family community? Regular doors have the metal bar but the NanaWalls are all glass.
Thank you.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question today.

Since I am unable to see your blue prints, I am sending along this information

This is the building code for the state of New Jersey for egress requirements: http://www2.iccsafe.org/states/newjersey/nj_building/pdfs/nj_bldg_chapter10.pdfT

The states should all have similar codes, but you might want to do a google search for "egress requirements for NanaWalls" in your state. The requirements are usually 36-inch wide in all states. And each room needs one way to get out in case of fire....however, this could be the front door, if the room you are speaking of is openly connected to the front door, or a side door.

NanaWalls says, "A NanaWall system can be prepped (ordered) for Egress, however, NanaWall does not provide the necessary equipment to meet Egress." http://www.nanawall.com/about/faq
