The ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’ Exit Sign

Image shows two different green exit signs. The first has a person running followed by a person using a wheelchair, moving in the same style as the running person, they are moving the left. The second green exit sign just has the person using a wheelchair moving quickly to the left.The ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’ presents a fully inclusive universal design.

It is inclusive and provides a clear pictographic indication of where an accessible exit is located.

It can also be used to help identify features of the accessible means of egress, such as refuge areas, evacuation lifts, evacuation chairs, or areas of rescue assistance.


Buildings need exit and emergency signs to identify parts of the accessible means of egress. An Accessible Exit Sign Project Initiative.
