Furniture Arrangements

If you are setting up furniture in a space that normally does not have it (such as a science fair), permanently re-arranging furniture (such as in a classroom), or temporarily re-arranging furniture for an event (such as in the Student Union conference room), it must be done in accordance with applicable regulations. This applies to all furniture, not just tables and chairs.

Applicable fire codes have very specific requirements, including egress pathways, aisle widths, and table spacing. Risk Management can provide you with a customized furniture layout for the space that meets fire code. If you need an approved layout, contact us at 940-898-4001 or
