Accessible Exit Signs – new designs

accessible-exit-sign-project-exit-signEgress signage is evolving.  The introduction of the ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’, or ‘Wheelie Man’ onto accessible exit signage changes the current discriminatory approach to exit signs in buildings and presents a fully inclusive universal design. The figures in the icons move in unison. They display the same urgency and motion. They appear to be travelling at the same speed. This is an inclusive design.
