Tenant Handbook

Use of Stairwells

Use of the building core stairwells is generally limited to emergency exit only.  Opening a stairwell door will cause an alarm at the 2200 Pennsylvania Avenue Lobby Security  Desk.  The stairwell doors are locked from the inside; therefore, once in the stairwell, an exit can only be made at the lobby level.  In the event of a fire alarm, however, all the doors unlock automatically, permitting re-entry at any floor.  Use of the stairwells for inter-floor travel requires express approval from both 2200 Pennsylvania Avenue Property Management and Tenant Management.
