Furniture Arrangements

If you are setting up furniture in a space that normally does not have it (such as the 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.

The applicable fire code has very specific requirements regarding egress pathways, aisle widths, table spacing, and so on. Risk Management can provide you with a customized furniture layout, or layouts, for the space that meets fire code. If you need an approved layout, contact us at for assistance.
