Different Types of Egress Maps Signs

What Are Egress Signs?

There are several fire safety signs that are required by federal law. The most common – and the one that often requires a special company to create – is the egress map, along with in-case-of fire signs, smoke signs, emergency exit signs, and “You Are Here” signs (which may be a part of the egress map). These signs may be crafted out of several materials:

Although these signs need to be clearly labeled and easy to read (to be consistent with local and federal law), customization is possible. Acrylic, metal, and plastic are easily customizable, so we can create these signs in essentially any Pantone color, size, or finish. This makes it possible for us to match the look of other signage, or create a map that is useful as a part of the building’s décor.

Creating these signs may require the input of an architect, to help make the building information as accurate as possible. You may be able to use the original floorplan of your building available from the DOB, or you may be able to contact an engineer to create a model of each floor.

Because we’re a full-service sign company, we can also create some of the additional FDNY fire evacuation signs and NYC fire safety signs that your building needs to protect those inside and also comply with local laws, like emergency exit signs and other directional signage.
