Intent 1:

To exempt travel distance measurements involving suites or rooms from the application of Sentence, which would otherwise require the measurements to be taken from the furthest point in the suites or rooms, and permit the measurements to be taken from the egress door of the suites or rooms, if certain conditions are met.

This is on the basis that:

  • fire compartments provide temporary protection from fires occurring elsewhere in a building, and
  • that in sprinklered buildings a fire is likely to be extinguished quickly and unrated enclosures provide a barrier to smoke.
