GLOSSARY

Access stairs

A stairway, usually open, serving a number of floors of a common tenant. Also known as convenience stairs. The air supply outlets of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC) into the conditioned space. A fire stair being used by the Fire Department to gain access to the fire area, where the door between the stairway and the fire area is being maintained in an open position. Elevators serving the upper areas of a building in a shaft that is not equipped with hoistway doors on the lower floors. When the fire safety director is not present in a class "E" office building occupied by less than 100 people above or below the street floor or by less than 500 people in the entire building, an employee trained by the fire safety director will man the fire command station and execute the fire safety plan. A condition in a centrifugal pump in which the impeller is rotating but no water is being discharged. A building in which the elevators, stairway and building support systems are grouped together in one area of the building. This area could be in the center of the building as in a center core building or on one of the sides of the building as in a side core building. The subdividing of floor areas by fire resistive separations into smaller spaces or compartments. A non-bearing wall, built between piers or columns for the enclosure of the structure, but not supported at each story. A device to seal off or to control air flow in a HVAC system. See air diffusers.
