Corridors

The International Building Code (IBC) defines a corridor as, “an enclosed exit access component that defines and provides a path of egress travel.” The available path is restricted and is usually bordered by occupied-use spaces. Consequently, it is potentially exposed to fires that might occur in those enclosed spaces. Fire risks include:

• Proximity to rooms with high fire risk
• Narrow construction
• Air-flow can accelerate the fire, especially when doors are left open
• As principal means of egress for employees, smoke can make space unusable
