About this video:

This video helps inspectors gain a clear understanding of corridors for the life safety portion of a commercial property inspection. It starts with a definition. A corridor is defined as an enclosed exit access component boarded by occupant space. It offers minimal choices for the direction of travel. It is continuous from the point of entry to an exit, and generally should not be interrupted by a room. Because corridors are part of the means of egress and generally require an alternate path of egress, they typically should have two clear and well-defined choices leading to separate exits. In the video, the example showcases an exit hallway that is connected to hotel rooms occupied by guests. The video then proceeds to provide helpful tips on identifying corridors and discusses inspection considerations to ensure protection is provided during emergency situations.
