CASE 2: Side Coiling without Egress
Post grade 12 educational occupancies are typically classified as “B” occupancies and usually incorporate mixed occupancies that are often considered accessory – full service kitchens and cafeterias (A-2), assembly areas (A), and dormitories (R-2) occupancies. Even though these spaces are ancillary to and a functional portion of the original larger occupancy they must be separated when they exceed the 10% rule.
This case study is very similar to the previous application with the exception of an egress requirement. The McKEON side coiler without egress became the most economical solution without compromising life safety.
