It addresses all portionsof the egress system i. Functional and operational characteristicsalso are specified for the componentsthat will permit their safe use withoutspecial knowledge or effort. The meansof egress protection requirements workin coordination with other sections of thecode, such as protection of vertical openings see Chapter 7 , interior finish see Chapter8 , fire suppression and detection systems see Chapter 9 and numerous others, allhaving an impact on life safety.

There are many accessibility issues that notonly benefit people with disabilities, butalso provide a tangible benefit to peopleChapter 11 ContentsSection Subject Section Subjectwithout disabilities. This type of requirementcan be set forth in the code as generallyapplicable without necessarily identifyingit specifically as an accessibility-relatedissue.

Accessibility criteria for existing buildingsare addressed in Section The fundamental philosophyof the code on the subject of accessibility isthat everything is required to be accessible.

This is reflected in the basic applicabilityrequirement see Section The standards address the minimum sizesof spaces, minimum temperature levels,and minimum light and ventilation levels. The collection of requirements addressesChapter 12 ContentsSection Subject Section Subjectlimiting sound transmission through walls,ventilation of attic spaces and under floorspaces crawl spaces.

Finally, the chapterprovides minimum standards for walls,partitions and floors to resist water intrusionand damage in rooms such as toilet andshower facilities, where water is frequentlyin use.

The requirements are directedtoward the design of building envelopeswith adequate thermal resistance and lowair leakage, and toward the design andselection of mechanical, water heating,electrical and illumination systems thatpromote effective use of depletableenergy resources. Chapter 14 Exterior WallsThis chapter addresses requirementsfor exterior walls of buildings.

Minimumstandards for wall covering materials,installation of wall coverings and the abilityof the wall to provide weather protectionare provided. This chapter also requiresexterior walls that are close to plot lines, orthat are bearing walls for certain types ofconstruction, to comply with the minimumfire-resistance ratings specified in ChaptersChapter 14 ContentsSection Subject Section Subject6 and 7. The installation of each type of wallcovering, be it wood, masonry, vinyl, metalcomposite material or an exterior insulationand finish system, is critical to its long-termperformance in protecting the interior ofthe building from the elements and thespread of fire.

Special attention to the useof combustible materials on the exterior ofthe building such as balconies, eaves, decksand architectural trim is the focus of Section The criteria address roof construction andcovering which includes the weatherprotectivebarrier at the roof and, in mostcircumstances, a fire-resistant barrier.

Thechapter is prescriptive in nature and is basedon decades of experience with varioustraditional materials. These prescriptiverules are very important for satisfyingperformance of one type of roof coveringor another. Section addresses rooftopstructures including penthouses, tanks,towers and spires. Rooftop penthouseslarger than prescribed in this chapter mustbe treated as a story under Chapter 5.

It includes minimumdesign loads, as well as permitted designmethodologies. Standards are provided forminimum design loads live, dead, snow,wind, rain, flood and earthquake as well asload combinations. The application of theseloads and adherence to the serviceabilityChapter 16 ContentsSection Subject Section Subjectcriteria will enhance the protection of lifeand property. The chapter references andrelies on many nationally recognized designstandards.

Structural design needs to addressthe conditions of the site and location. Therefore maps of rainfall, seismic, snowand wind criteria in different regions areprovided. This chapter expandson the requirements of Chapter 1 regardingthe roles and responsibilities of the buildingofficial regarding approval of buildingcomponents. It also provides additionalduties and responsibilities for the owner,Chapter 17 ContentsSection Subject Section Subjectcontractor, design professionals and specialinspectors.

Proper assembly of structuralcomponents, proper quality of materialsused, and proper application of materials areessential to ensuring that a building, onceconstructed, complies with the structuraland fire-resistance minimums of the codeand the approved design.

To determinethis compliance often requires continuousor frequent inspection and testing. Chapter17 establishes these special inspection andtesting standards as well as reporting of thework to the building official. Itprovides criteria for the geotechnical andstructural considerations in the selectionand installation of adequate support forthe loads transferred from the structureabove. The uncertainties of foundationconstruction make it extremely difficultto address every potential failure withinthe text of the code.

The chapter includesrequirements for soils investigation andsite preparation for receiving a foundation In-situ Load Test Preconstruction Load Tests Material and test Standardsincluding the allowed load-bearing valuesfor soils and for protecting the foundationfrom water intrusion.

Section addresses the basic requirements for allfoundation types. Later sections addressfoundation requirements that are specific toshallow foundations and deep foundations. Due care must be exercised in the planningand design of foundation systems based onobtaining sufficient soils information, theuse of accepted engineering procedures,experience and good technical judgment.

Thechapter also includes references to additionalstandards. Structural concrete must bedesigned and constructed to comply withthis code and all listed standards.

There arespecific sections of the chapter addressingconcrete slabs, anchorage to concrete,shotcrete, reinforced gypsum concreteand concrete-filled pipe columns.

Chapter 24 Glass and GlazingThis chapter establishes regulations for glassand glazing used in buildings and structuresthat, when installed, are subjected to wind,snow and dead loads. Engineering anddesign requirements are included in thechapter. Additional structural requirementsare found in Chapter A second concernof this chapter is glass and glazing used inareas where it is likely to have an impacton the occupants.

Section identifieshazardous locations where glazinginstalled must either be safety glazing orblocked to prevent human impact. Safetyglazing must meet stringent standardsand be appropriately marked or identified. Additional standards for glass and glazingin guards, handrails, elevator hoistways andelevator cars, and in athletic facilities areprovided.

Therefore, in the event of using wood in theconstruction of any building, the originalChapter 23 of IBC shall be used.

These represent themost common interior and exterior finishmaterials in the building industry. Thischapter primarily addresses quality-controlrelatedissues with regard to materialspecifications and installation requirements.

The buildingofficial or inspector primarily needs toverify that the appropriate product is usedand properly installed for the intendeduse and location. While often simplyused as wall and ceiling coverings, properdesign and application are necessary toprovide weather resistance and requiredfire protection for both structural andnonstructural building components.

This chapter provides standards addressingfoam plastic insulation, foam plastics usedas interior finish and trim, and other plasticveneers used on the inside or outside ofa building. Plastic siding is regulated byChapter Sections through address the use of light-transmitting plasticsin various configurations such as walls,roof panels, skylights, signs and as glazing.

Requirements for the use of fiber reinforcedpolymers, fiberglass reinforced polymersand reflective plastic core insulation arealso contained in this chapter. Someplastics exhibit rapid flame spread andheavy smoke density characteristics whenexposed to fire. Additionally, exposureto the heat generated by a fire can causesome plastics to deform, which can affecttheir performance.
