Thereof, can you use a fire exit as a normal door?
We're sometimes asked, incidentally, whether a designated fire exit can also legally be used as a regular entrance/exit door i.e. for every day use. The answer is yes it can – indeed the fact that it is in daily use makes it ideal as an escape route as its location is well known.
What are the main requirements for exits?
Exit routes must be at least 28 inches wide at all points. Exit routes must be unobstructed and free from clutter. Adequate lighting (including emergency lighting) must be provided so that an employee with normal vision can see along the exit route. Each exit must be clearly visible and marked by a sign reading “Exit”.
