Exit Access Corridor Policy Term Definition

As defined by the NFPA, an Exit Access Corridor is that portion of the exit path that leads to an exit (e.g. corridor leading to a stair or horizontal) and is typically separated from the rest of the building by rated walls.  This does not include aisles within suites. Contact Environmental Health and Safety, Occupational Safety and Fire Prevention (ext.70515) with questions regarding your area and whether or not a particular corridor meets this definition.
