Less than 90 DegreesLess than 90 DegreesA while back, I had a couple of posts about a door that opened less than 90 degrees.  I received a photo of the application that inspired the original question, and I think based on the feedback I received from code officials and the fact that the clear opening width is 32 1/4″, this application would be acceptable.

Just for fun, I took the photo of the purple door at my kids’ elementary school the other day.  The wall on the right seems to have been added at some point and I have no idea why they didn’t do a better job of handling the door, but luckily it’s not required for egress.  This door would not meet the requirements for clear opening width, in case you were wondering.  🙂

Thank you to Dave Saltmarsh for the photo on the left.
