New smart Emergency Exit signs Deliver a Faster, Safer and Smarter Evacuation
Academic trials have proven that they can reduce evacuation times by half and improve decision times by up to 44%
‘’Guiding people to safety and away from danger is why emergency exit signs exist. But many of today’s signage systems lack the ability to respond to a changing threat environment or to attract the immediate attention of the people needing assistance. These signs may be required by building standards and safety legislation, but their potential to be overlooked or to send people into harm’s way makes them inherently unreliable in many situations for which they are intended
The passive nature of these emergency systems has contributed to the toll of avoidable deaths in fire and other emergencies. Tragedies involving the failure of legally compliant emergency signage systems to fulfil their basic purpose include the King’s Cross Underground fire (UK, 1987), the Düsseldorf Airport fire (Germany, 1996), the Rhode Island Night Club fire (US, 2003) and the Nairobi Westgate Shopping Mall terrorist attack (Africa, 2013) [1–4]’’.
