BCAB #1105 - Exit Door from Aircraft Hangar, Article 22.214.171.124.

Re: Exit Door from Aircraft Hangar, Article 126.96.36.199.
With reference to your letter of November 17, 1989, regarding an exit door from the Avionics Shop.
From the limited information submitted it is not clear whether the door in question is a required exit under the Building Code. Assuming that it is in fact a required exit, then it must comply with the Code provisions for an exit, which include Article 188.8.131.52. Your letters suggest a possible conflict with security, but we would point out that this does not overrule life safety.
If you wish for further assistance in this matter, it will be necessary to submit full details, including a floor plan of the building.
