In my recent NFPA® Live session I discussed calculating egress capacity in accordance with NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®, to determine whether the egress system is sized appropriately. This session built off the June 6 NFPA Live on Calculating Occupant Load. I covered the different types of components in the means of egress and minimum widths for egress components versus the required width needed for egress capacity. I also reviewed how to determine the capacity of the different types of components in the means of egress and whether or not the means of egress is sized appropriately.
I received this follow-up question from a member, I hope you find some value in it.
