The Inside Outside Guys: Understanding Egress Doors and Windows
From the Detroit News | By Ken Calverley and Chuck Breidenstein
DETROIT, Feb. 23, 2023 ~ What is a means of egress?
We hear the term all of the time in reference to windows, but what does it really mean?
A means of egress might be a driveway, where you can access a lot from a public road and exit that lot using the same drive.
When applied to windows or doors in a home, it refers to an emergency escape and rescue opening whereby a person could leave the building if necessary or enter the home to rescue someone.
