Is there a code or a standard for the use of Round Fire Escape? As seen in below capture. 

Is there a specific code/standard for the design/inspection of Fire escapes? Is this fire escape is used only by Firefighters for easy access and exists from building incase of fire?


Exist stairs are available at our office building, so what is the use or benefit of "Round Fire Escape". 

I have looked and reviewed NFPA, but could not locate or find any specific standard regarding Fire Escape. 


I do appreciate your help and thank you in advance.
