Emergency Exit Doors for the Workplace
How would your team or clients escape your business in an emergency situation? Are your exits clearly marked throughout your business, or are they blocked and hidden? According to the United States Department of Labor, a workplace must have two exit routes for prompt evacuation. Exit routes must be located as far away as practical from each other in case one is blocked by fire or smoke. We understand the importance of being prepared in an emergency situation. We know that:
- Exit routes must be permanent parts of the workplace.
- Exit discharges must lead directly outside or to a street, walkway, refuge area, public way, or open space with access to the outside.
- Exit discharge areas must be large enough to accommodate people likely to use the exit route.
- Exit route doors must unlock from the inside. They must be free of devices or alarms that could restrict the use of the exit route if the device or alarm fails.
- Exit routes must support the maximum permitted occupant load for each floor served, and the capacity of an exit route may not decrease in the direction of exit route travel to the exit discharge.
- Exit routes must have ceilings at least 7 feet, 6 inches high.
- An exit access must be at least 28 inches wide at all points. Objects that project into the exit must not reduce their width.
What Is a Commercial Emergency Exit?
A commercial emergency exit allows occupants of a commercial building to make a quick and easy escape in cases where evacuation is necessary. This essential safety feature also provides alternative exits around a building in case the main exits are inaccessible. Emergency exits are often placed in stairwells and other emergency gathering locations. It’s crucial to ensure that your emergency exits are always unblocked and accessible.
Commercial Emergency Exit Doors vs. Fire Doors
Fire doors and emergency exit doors are often confused with each other, but they are different products with different purposes. Fire doors are supposed to prevent the spread of fire within a building. They tend to have fire-resistant components that are capable of containing a fire within a single room, preventing it from spreading. On the other hand, emergency exit doors, or fire exit doors, are designed as an exit for emergency evacuations. These doors open quickly from the inside and stay open, allowing for all occupants to exit the building much more rapidly.
The Benefits of Commercial Exit Door Installation
Commercial exit door installation generally makes your building a much safer place to be. In many cases, safety codes may require your building to have fully functioning fire exit doors. In other cases, you may want to install them to protect your workers and property. Fire exit doors serve a few purposes. First, they allow for easy exit in cases of emergency. Traditional doors can catch on fire or even melt, making them impossible to use. Our doors will function as a safe exit in the most extreme heat.
