Or a good cry…
Thank you to David Boehning for these Weepy Wednesday…I mean Wordless Wednesday photos!
I encountered the same problem in Edmonton AB with an advertising company. After a lengthy battle, I was able to have their ads removed from the doors. The mutual agreement was that the ads could be placed on non-egress and non-fire doors such as washrooms or meeting rooms. (I wish i could post a photo)
Feel free to send me any photos if you’d like. email@example.com
Even with the lighted “EXIT” signs above the doors I think this could still be a safety hazard.Exit doors should look like door; put the ads on the walls.
Exit signs and egress should be clearly visible. The problem lies in what’s clearly visible to some may not be for others. I don’t know of any code that addresses conflicting graphics such as this. Very interesting!
The issue is that people scanning for a door quickly in an emergency are more likely to miss this than than an door with a different treatment.
With VDI’s custom graphics, you could probably make that panic device completely disappear.
Exit door should big and simple design that we can see for a trouble or problem.
Provide a safe, protected route to allow the occupants to escape but having a design i think it’s a great idea just making sure EXIT sign is visible.
