Remember the other issue about the stairs is first of all, it's the total number of people who are using the two stairs, if I need to add a third stair or a fourth or fifth, the other issue's gonna be that if I'm making a wider and wider stair, at some point, it gets too wide, and I now have a third line of people running down in a panic in the middle of the stair, and they need to have their own handrail. So once I get beyond a certain distance, depends on the code, but it just sort of sometimes past 60, maybe 66, as soon as I start getting past that, I have to start adding a middle handrail in order for it to meet the requirement that there's always a handrailing nearby. So that width starts to jump pretty quick.
