Egress Group is a company based in Melbourne, Australia that promotes the need for an accessible means of egress via its websites and social media presence. The Accessible Exit Sign Project website presents ideas that have been developed by Egress Group Pty Ltd to display the concept of accessible exit signage.
Egress Group believe it’s time for a change. A change in attitudes, perceptions and legislation regarding exit signs in buildings.
The company believes all buildings need to show the egress route, with clear, unambiguous signage showing the path to safety. This includes the use of the ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’ as a universal design best practice.
Egress Group now manages the licensing arrangements in the use of the ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’. By doing so, they can maintain consistency in design, promote users of the Icon and use income generated to further promote the need for inclusive and accessible egress routes.
