Can anyone tell me where I can find information on what the opening for an entrance to an area is for fire department egress ? I am at a hotel. The area behind my dryers has two entrances. One on each side. One is 36" wide but only has a 12" clearance between a lint catcher and the door frame, the other, is 24" wide with no obstructions to the area behind the dryers. The fire department is not sure if by code, the 24" opening is code.
