The adopted range of horizontal exit
spray angle ([beta]) is 5[degrees] to 20[degrees] measured from the LF line (Figure 4, right); the actual value depends on the wind direction and the amount of side spin.
Exit stairways and evacuation elevators must be available as an accessible means of egress in conjunction with areas of refuge or horizontal exits
. This change will have minimal impact due to fire and safety codes, already adopted in most states, containing similar requirements.
Because facilities receive separate LSC scoring for each building and each zone within a building (space separated by floors, horizontal exits
or smoke barriers), and points must be earned in four categories (fire control, egress, refuge and general safety), days might seem like an optimistic estimate without ALARM.
