What does RSET mean?
Required Safe Egress Time (RSET) is the time required by occupants to move from their positions at the start of the fire to areas of safety. RSET should be less than Available Safe Egress Time (ASET). ASET is defined as the time when fire-induced conditions within an occupied space or building become untenable because of presence of smoke/toxic combustion gasses/heat. The difference between ASET and RSET is the margin of safety. The larger the difference, the higher is the safety of the occupants.
