Commercial coach exits.

When applicable, a commercial coach must comply with International Building Code, Chapter 11 Accessibility and with the following requirements:
(1) Commercial coaches must have at least two exterior doors that are remote from each other. Remote means that in:
(a) Single-wide units the doors may not be less than twelve feet apart; and
(b) Multiwide units the doors may not be less than twenty feet apart, center to center from each other measured in a straight line direction regardless of the length of travel between doors.
Exception:
A commercial coach that is twenty-four feet long or less needs only one exit door, unless it has a dormitory sleeping area.
(2) Exterior doors must be constructed for exterior use. Exterior doors must provide at least a thirty-five inch wide by seventy-nine inch high clear opening (36" x 80" door). Each swinging exterior door must have a key-operated lock that has a deadlock latch. A deadlock with a passage set installed below the deadlock may be used as an acceptable alternate for each exterior door. The locking mechanism must be engaged or disengaged by the use of a lever or other device from the interior of the commercial coach. Locks must not require the use of a key for operation from the inside.
(3) Every room designed for dormitory sleeping, unless it has an exterior exit door, must have at least one window which can be opened from the inside without using tools. This window must provide a clear opening of at least twenty-two inches in its smallest dimension and five square feet in area with the bottom of the opening not more than three feet above the floor. If a screen or storm window is used it must be readily removable without using tools.
