Final exit

Approved document B of the building regulations defines a final exit as:

The termination of an escape route from a building giving direct access to a street, passageway, walkway or open space, and sited to ensure the rapid dispersal of persons from the vicinity of a building so that they are no longer in danger from fire and/or smoke.

Windows are not acceptable as final exits.
