Section 712, 1009

These case studies deal with a condition wherein several floors are common to each other. The floors are inter-connected with an interior exit access or communicating stairways. Previous editions of the code addressed these stair features as non-egress stairs. The 2012 edition of the code defines interior exit access stairways as interior stairways that are not required interior exit stairways. (202)
