Continuing in a series of strange things that I have seen while consulting at hospitals…
This is an equipment room. It appears to be a water room of some sort as I see a water tank and some water filters. I also see boxes and ‘stuff’ blocking access into and out of this room.
The problem with this situation is the room does not have a clear aisle width. Even though this is an equipment room, you still must maintain a clear aisle width of at least 28-inches for existing conditions, and 36-inches for new construction.
Remember: The exit-access is not limited to the corridor. Every room has an exit-access, and the appropriate aisle width must be maintained in those areas. Section 184.108.40.206.1 and 220.127.116.11.2 of the 2012 Life Safety Code provides the standards that regulate the aisle width.
