The Accessible Exit Sign Project

The Accessible Exit Sign ProjectThe Accessible Exit Sign Project is an on-line social media and web campaign that  promotes the need for an accessible means of egress in all buildings, with appropriate exit signage.

The concept was developed by Egress Group Pty Ltd as we think it is time for buildings to show where the accessible egress paths and exit doors are located.

This Accessible Exit Sign Project website presents ideas on the concept of accessible exit signage, in the form of the example accessible exit signs on these web pages. It is envisaged that in the near future these signs will become the norm and a minimum requirement in all new buildings around the world.

These example exit sign designs can hopefully start discussions between industry stakeholders, disability groups, legislators, developers, insurers etc, to look at better building design solutions, that provide safer buildings, reduce risk and meet the needs of all occupants.
