ADA Braille Area of Refuge / Rescue Signs

An area of refuge refers to fire-resistance rated and smoke protected space. Those unable to use stairs can register a call for evacuation assistance and await instructions or assistance. They must provide direct access to an exit stairway (or to an elevator equipped with standby power). Horizontal exits can substitute for areas of refuge.
From the UNITED STATES ACCESS BOARD  website, “According to the International Building Code (IBC):
The International Building Code requires that doors providing access to these areas be identified by a sign that includes the term “AREA OF REFUGE” and the International Symbol of Accessibility (ISA). Both the IBC and the ADA Standards apply requirements for tactile (able to be read by touch) and visual characters to the area of refuge signs.”
