Question Remodeling a bathroom/utility/laundry room

I am planning on remodeling a room in my basement that currently serves as a laundry room + 1/2 bathroom. It also houses my gas furnace and hot water heater. The room is partially finished, but I would like to build a wall to seperate the bathroom portion so that the furnace, water heater, washer and dryer are hidden but still accessable from the 1/2 bath. To do this, I plan on extending a partial wall that is already in place with framework and sheetrock. The wall used to hide the furnace and such will actually be a big pair of sliding leuvered doors. My question is this: According to code, how much space is needed between the front of the furnace and the louvered door. I have about 15 inches to work with. Will this be enough space???

Thanks in advace for your advice!!!

Call your Building Inspection Department for local code on all of this. It varies from place to place.
