egress sizing > stairways. my mind is fuzzy on this. i take the total square foot provided to me for some space (TABLE 1004.1.2 in chapter 1004 occupant load) divide it by the occupant load factor (OCLF) and i get some OCCUPANCY? then i take this OCCUPANCY and i divide it by - well i divide it by 0.3 to get the STAIRWAY WIDTH? but if the space is SPRINKLERED (and NOT H for HIGH HAZARD or I-2 for INSTITUTIONAL MEDICAL CARE then i can divide by 0.2 to get the stairway width? with the understanding that 44” is going to control and be the value of this number is under 44”? where was the 44” requirements in the code again?
