Fluchträume


Explanation:
Wenn man nach der Definition von «exit enclosures» geht, die u.a. im folgenden Link zu finden ist, sind wohl generell Fluchträume (und nicht nur Treppenhäuser) gemeint.

disagree  gofink: The number of stories connected by the exit enclosure shall include any basements but not any mezzanines. Exit enclosures shall have a fire-resistance rating not less - https://up.codes/s/exit-enclosures

  -> Falls du ganz sicher bist, dass ausschliesslich Treppen gemeint sind. Sonst würde ich eine umfassendere Lösung wählen.

agree  Björn Vrooman: Not sure about "-räume," though it's in here: https://shop.vds.de/de/download/f1c5d055d56ab2f8ce566ae4aff8... But the disagreement makes no sense. Both the code(!) and the CSE article say it's about more than stairs, e.g., a tunnel between buildings.

see picture 16 of 30: EXIT ENCLOSURES - An exit enclosure shall not be used for any purpose that has the potential to interfere with its use as an exit, if so designated, as an area of refuge.

Das enclosure im Original bezieht sich darauf, dass die Feuertreppe nicht freiliegend außen am Gebäude ist, sondern im Inneren als Fluchtreppenhaus

Fluchttreppenhaus - see https://www.hausjournal.net/fluchttreppenhaus
