All Exits shall be marked by a readily visible sign. Exit Signs are required designation and exit access and should be located with such Size, Color, Contrast and Design as to be visible incase of an Emergency. 

Exit signs must be clear of decorations, equipment which may impair visibility to means of an Exit.

Access to exits must be marked by visible signs in all cases where the exit or way to reach it is not immediately visible to the occupants.

An Exit sign, or similar designation, with an arrow indicating the directions, shall be placed in every location where the direction of travel to reach the nearest exit is not immediately apparent or as directed by local fire marshal.

Each of the signs marking exits should have the word “Exit” in legible letters no smaller than six inches high. The main stroke of the letter should be 3/4 inch wide. If the path to the nearest exit isn’t obvious, an exit sign that includes an arrow directing the reader to the nearest exit will be required. 8 inch letters apply in some Boroughs of New York and City of Chicago. Please refer to local laws in depth Sign Regulations and requirements. 

The requirements for placement, brightness and number of exit signs in a commercial building is governed by both OSHA, The NFPA, as well as other state and local regulations. We will define each of these organizations and note the applicable regulations.
