External emergency exit


Postby gwizz » Tue Dec 11, 2007 10:53 pm

I have been asked to make a stair outside a double door emergency exit as there is a distance between the bottom of the doors and ground level outside.

The project doesn't bother me, only I have looked all over to try and find the regulations for the going and risers for emergency stair exits but cannot find anything resemmbling what I need.

The width of both doors together comes to 1.6m and the drop from the doors is roughly 0.8m.
