Q Don Lasker • 06/20/2019, 9:39:47 AM I asked Nina on a chat what height an exit sign should be mounted in NYC. She replied 7'-5" to the initial mount. What is the initial mount? Also is this the maximum height? Can it be lowered?
A Exit Light Co. The standard recommended mounting height for exit signs is 7.5'. If this height is not feasible for your application, we recommend checking with your local fire marshal.
