Are they required in restrooms?
Small ofice (6x6) within a larger office?
Spacing fixtures along 40ft wall?
Minium candle power? etc, etc

Jim

Jim:
The UCC (5:23) has basic requirements for em/exit lighting.

Your local Fire Sub-Code is the guy to talk to as to exact locations.

Bathrooms are a 'tough' call, some twp want it, some seem to care less.

What about the job plans?? CH is probably a Class I town and should require sealed, signed drawings??

Better check with the PFD, stop in at any local station and they will be more then willing to help you.

I dont think philly does it yet but some towns are beging to require you to also install them at floor level. So that one can see them while crawling through the smoke. As a firefighter i am ALL for this. You will never see them at the top of the wall through the smoke of an average fire yet at all in a smokey one. Regardless check with the fd.

Here i did some of the leg work for you this is the PFD web site; The contacts section.

Good luck.

Sorry your profile said NJ. Still, contact the Fire Official or Fire Dept.

BTW, welcome to the forums.
