    Means of Egress

    Exists must provide pedestrians with a safe encapsulated passage to evacuate from, in the event of a fire or other hazardous event. The exit simply provides the a person with a direct pathway outside the facility.

    Exit location surrounding walls must be fire resistant in order to be considered a effective exit.

    Exit must lead to a outside, and the exit doors must be built to open in the direction away from outgoing patrons.

    Exist discharge are pathways that must lead to an outside perimeter safely away from the danger. It must be directed to a ground level egress.

    Stairwells are very important when developers design buildings. Being that stairs wells are a means of transportation they provide people with a passage from point A to Z. The placement of any stairs is vital to the entire facility design layout and facilities function.

    Placement of stairs should relatively be compatible with the entire structure of the building. The stairs should be easily accessible and not complicated to be reached because stair wells provide a means to reach different levels of a building.

    Some multistory buildings may be suited with escolars as a means of transportation. Elevators within multistory buildings are required by law to be imbedded within a facilities structure for disabled people.

    Ventilation systems and stoves should be equally proportional to the size and space of a room. They should also provide an adequate amount of ventilation to that particular cell of a building, and also be in congruence with federal policy.
