code load for stairs?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can anyone tell me if they feel that the 100psf code live load is intended
for interior private stairs of a residential unit with an occupant load less
than 10? (Not public stairs or fire escapes, but possibly a required means
of egress for within that unit.)

Does not seem like a bad idea, but I was just curious what the intent of the
code is.
