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
