If this is commercial, the size of the deck should determine the occupancy load and that should determine the minimum egress requirements.

If this is a residence and is not part of any egress path, there should be no minimum.

Does anybody know what is the narrowest allowed outside door? It will lead to the balcony-type deck with no fire escape.
Thanks for your help.

If it's not a required exit door, then there is no minimum size under the IRC.

R311.4.2 Door type and size. The required exit door shall be a side-hinged door not less than 3 feet (914 mm) in width and 6 feet 8 inches (2032 mm) in height. Other doors shall not be required to comply with these minimum dimensions.
