Do You Need Egress Windows in NJ & Staten Island, NY?

The minimum net clear opening width of emergency escapes and rescue openings is 20 inches. The required height for such a window or door should not exceed 44 inches, so as to keep escape routes snappy with prompt access in case something goes wrong inside your building!
