Q&A on storage in a corridor

October 14, 2015

In a recent Q&A on the FacilityCare website, consultant Brad Keyes answered a question about storage in a corridor.

Q:  If I have a hallway that is more than 8 feet wide and beds and other equipment are being stored on one side of the breezeway for more than 30 minutes, would this be allowed as long as the width is maintained at 8 feet or more?

A: Yes, it would be permitted according to section 18.2.3.3 of the 2000 Life Safety Code, provided the items stored in the corridor allow for a clear width of 8 feet in the corridor, and the items stored do not constitute a hazardous area.
