Stairway ID Signs for Hotels
Stairway identification signs (or stairway ID signs) may serve a general purpose of directing traffic, but more importantly they deliver critical information in the event of an emergency—to your employees, to your guests, to any persons in the building, and to emergency responders.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), among other organizations—not to mention national, state, and regional codes—require identification signage be provided inside stairwells at every level. Signage should show the stair identifier, floor level, terminus of the top and bottom of the building, roof accessibility, discharge level, and direction to exit discharge. On floors that require upward travel to reach the exit, a directional indicator should also be provided. In hotels or similar buildings with individual room numbers, the signs should also include the room or suite numbers most directly accessed by each stair on every level. It's all about information that is consistently marked and located, and communicates locations and exits quickly and efficiently.
At HOTELSIGNS.com, our signs meet the requirements, and we can work with you to fulfill any specialized needs or requirements. Our signs include 1.5–inch and one–inch digitally printed black letters on a white lexan background with six–inch floor numbers. Level Indicator and Exit signs include raised letters and Grade 2 Braille that comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Guidelines. Foam tape strips on the back of the sign make for easy mounting (five feet above the floor and be visible with the stair door open or closed).
