Means of Egress - Dead-end Corridor Storage

Can dead-end corridors be used for storage or other uses?

Up to a 50 square feet footprint can be used for non-combustible storage at a dead-end of an egress access corridor. This would include items such as equipment, work stations, computers on wheels, sitting areas, etc. at the end of a corridor as long as it does not impede the means of egress from rooms that open to the corridor or entry into a stairwell exit.
