Schools, Colleges & Dormitory Evacuation Maps

Over 19 years ago we designed our first building evacuation diagrams for a regional high school. Today, thousands of building evacuation signs are shipped annually to schools, colleges and universities across the country.

Pictographix emergency evacuation diagrams are tailored to the facility and your emergency action plan requirements. EvacMap diagrams are designed with industry standard icons and colors, maximized for legibility and simplicity. Floor plans are re-drafted, simplified and colored to accentuate egress routes and non-egress areas. To display your diagrams in classrooms and common areas, a wide range of placards including vandal resistant prints to acrylic (AC) are offered.

Starting out on your Evacuation Map Project:

  • Contact your fire inspector for local evacuation diagram fire code requirements?
  • Determine the location and quantity of EvacMap signs required.
  • Will fire safety information (equipment/instructions) be required on the signs?
  • When determining the sign size, consider the floor plan scale along with the safety information you wish to indicate on the diagrams.
  • Vandal resistant and durable signs are recommended for educational facilities.
  • Will Severe Weather or Tornado shelter labeling be required on diagrams?
  • Are earthquake instructions required?
  • Are post evacuation Assembly Areas required on diagrams?
  • Note that dormitories are Transient Occupancies and will require a sign in each room.

Site-Map and Assembly Areas

A mini Site Map with your Assembly are can be indicated on your evacuation diagrams. The site map shows the building footprint, adjacent buildings and roads and the location of the post evacuation 
"Assembly Area" or "Meeting Area"

Severe Weather Shelters
Facilities located in severe weather regions should allocate safe Areas of Refuge for building occupants. These areas can be labeled on evacuation diagrams; safefe areas can be any room inside a building that has reinforced wall (concrete) and no windows.
