hi david, all
i am trying to work a stairway width example off the 2015 commentary (snip attached).
the 2015 /example/ states to check the required width per stairway against a value of 44” and indicates this is in 1009.1. i don’t see this in 1009.1 but see 1009.3 Stairways where it appears to clearly indicate 48” (again this is the 2015 commentary with snip attached). it also has an exception #2 indicating 48” is not required when the building is sprinklered BTW.
1009.4 in 2012 appears to indicate 44” per the snip from the software.
can anyone confirm that 44” is correct for exam purposes but also if there is a lesser value for sprinklered building?
this 2015/2012 thing is a tad confusing.
