Do Park Model homes require two exit/egress doors?

Thursday, February 11, 2021

It depends on whether you are talking about a home built to ANSI standards or to HUD standards. ANSI Park Models are manufactured to comply with the American National Standards Institute’s ANSI A119.5 standard, and need only one exit door. They are also limited to a max of 400 square feet.

    HUD Park Models, on the other hand, can be up to 500 square feet. But they must be built to the same HUD standards as a larger mobile home. And HUD requires two doors for emergency egress. A sliding glass door can be used for one of the exits, and most HUD Park Models have one swinging door and one slider.
