Why Do You Need ADA Braille Exit / Entrance Signs?
So why do you need tactile Exit, Exit Route and Emergency Exit Signs? In short, it's the law. Specifically, the IBC (International Building Code) requires a tactile “EXIT” sign adjacent to the door to an egress stairway, an exit passageway, and the exit discharge (§1011.3, §1003.2.10.3 – 2000 addresses doors to egress stairways only).
It's also important places have clearly identified entrances for all guests to enter. Having entrances which are handicap accessible make the space easy to use and helps to prevent confusion.
ADA Sign Standards
In addition, the ADA Standards
include a similar requirement. For example, it requires visual and tactile exit signs at doors at exit stairways, exit passageways, and exit discharge (§216.4.1). (An exit passageway is a horizontal component of an exit that is separated from interior building spaces by fire-resistance-rated construction that leads to the exit discharge or public way.)
