NFPA 101 Section 9.4.7 does not mention either vertical or inclined platform lifts. See specific 9.4.7 language below:
NFPA 101 Section 9.4.7 Openings to Exit Enclosurers. Conveyors, elevators, dumbwaiters, and pneumatic conveyors serving various stories of a building shall not open to an exit enclosure.
A plan review official is applying Section 9.4.7 to our proposed addition of a new 2 story exit stair tower with vertical lift.
Am I correct in saying that NFPA 101 Section 9.4.7 does not apply to our project given that a platform lift is different from either conveyors, elevators, dumbwaiters, and pneumatic conveyors
