OVERVIEW OF CODES FOR NYC EMERGENCY LIGHTING AND EXIT SIGNS

General Code For Exit Signs

GENERAL CODE

It is important to note that these additional regulatory requirements by New York City do not in any way negate existing regulations by OSHA, NFPA and other agencies. Where New York City doesn’t mention a specific regulation, such as in monthly and annual testing requirements, the federal regulations are still in effect. New York City’s requirements are an addition to, not a replacement for, these other regulatory requirements. 

Design Of NYC Approved Exit Sign

DESIGN

There are specific differences for the design between exit signs approved for York City code and signs manufactured to meet NEC (National Electrical Code) specifications:

  • The word “EXIT” must be in red letters

  • The red letters must be 8 inches tall, with a 1 inch stroke (line thickness) 

  • The internal lighting of the sign must be red.

  • The lighting intensity must be at least 250 foot-lamberts. 

  • The background is required to be white, translucent or light grey (aluminum).

Installation Code For NYC Exit Signs

INSTALLATION

In addition to the normal installation of exit signs as required by OSHA standards, NYC adds the following specifications:

  • Signs must be installed at all exit points and stairwells. The photoluminescent signs must be mounted in a low location, in case the building is filled with smoke.

  • Exit signs at doors must be placed visible to people approaching that door. 

  • Directional markings shall be applied for all exits. 

  • On long corridors where the exit is not easily visible, exit signs must be placed periodically.
