The specific details of building safety regulations can vary somewhat depending on your location, but egress map signs, often also called floor map signs, are typically required no matter where a building is located.
These signs direct occupants where to go in the event of an emergency like a fire. Blue Dot Signs is a full service sign company, which means we can craft simple signage made of sturdy, high quality materials that are both compliant with HPD, ADA, and fire safety codes as well as reflective of your business’s aesthetic.
Building Safety Signs Types
Floor map signs are a crucial part of evacuations both real and practice run-throughs because they give a layout of the floor they’re posted on with highlights pointing out where on that floor the sign is posted (You Are Here signs). This lets occupants know how close they are to the quickest exit, making evacuations faster and safer.
Building information signs like egress maps are required – or at least strongly suggested – by the HPD. Other types of egress signs besides floor map signs that we can provide include:
- Stair Signs
- Lit Emergency Exit Signs
- Fire Exit Door Signs
- Elevator Bank Signs, and More
These signs are designed to be quickly read and understood by as many people as possible, and don’t typically involve a lot of creative customization in order to avoid decreasing their accessibility. However, we can customize some aspects of yours if they don’t violate safety codes.
