FLOOR PROXIMITY EXIT SIGNS

Question asked by ramdeom on Sep 11, 2019

Are Floor Proximity Exit Signs required in a hospital (health care facility) or not?

If yes, why are they required as they can be easily damaged by wheel chairs or trolleys? Any special precautions to be taken?

If not, why aren't they required.

NFPA 101 - 2006 indicates that the only occupancies currently mandating floor proximity exit signs are assembly occupancies where they are required in special amusement buildings.

Thank you.
