NYC Exit Signs / Emergency Lights
New York City emergency lights need to output TWICE the national standard for foot-candles as measured along the path of egress at floor level. New York City exit signs require lettering with a height of 8 inches in any building designated as a theater, concert halls, or designated as a shelter or fraternity & sorority house. All exit signs in New York City are required to have red lettering. Finally, these units must be of metal or other durable materials. These New York City code approved exit lights (exit sign / emergency light combos) meet all necessary requirements.
