The IBC Commitment to People with Disability

Unlike other less prescriptive building codes, including the BCA in Australia, the IBC acknowledges the additional needs of people with disability during an evacuation of a building and considers the challenges that this user group may face when trying to exit a building during an emergency.

This is where the IBC stands out as a building code that considers the needs of people with disabilities, particularly those who are unable to exit via a vertical path (i.e. a fire escape stairway).

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