Horizontal Bars as a Ladder - Legal?

1 Reply

Hi,

I recently did a home inspection and one of the items found was that on one of the balconies, there were horizontal bars that could be a safety risk since it can be climbed like a ladder. Does anyone know of the legality of this and whether it is up to code?

Thanks!

Common sense says no and no, but I have no idea.  Inspectopedia is a great site and may answer your question.
