Re: Stairway Landing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Jim,
>From what I could find in IBC, "every landing shall
have a minimum dimension in the direction of travel
equal to the width of the stairway.  Such dimension
need not exceed 48 inches where the stairway has a
straight run"  That is 2000IBC 1003.3.3.4 and 2003IBC
1009.4.
Hope that helps.
