Each year Pictographix provides thousands of guest room evacuation route signs to the hospitality industry. Professionally designed Evacmap designs meet local fire code and designs can be branded corporate logo/colors as needed.

EvacMap diagrams provide maximum legibility where the viewer locator (You Are Here), fire exits and egress routes feature prominently; floor plan simplicity is paramount. Evacuation map sign services include a wide range of evacuation plan sign displays to meet any environmental or aesthetic requirement.

What are the fire code requirements for posting building evacuation maps?
