Everlux: Improving Fire Safety in High-Rise Residential Buildings

As global urbanization accelerates, the need for effective fire safety measures in residential buildings, particularly in high-rise residential buildings, is more critical than ever.

In New York City, fire safety regulations for residential buildings include specific requirements for apartment and guest room identification and directional markings and signs, as outlined in 3 RCNY §505-01. Additionally, entrance door fire emergency markings in apartments, guest rooms, sleeping rooms, and stairwell doors are mandated under 3 RCNY §505-02. These rules apply to Group R-1 and R-2 buildings.

  • The Group R-1 Buildings are transient occupancies, which means they accommodate short-term stays, examples include boarding houses (transient), hotels (transient), and motels (transient).
  • The Group R-2 Buildings are primarily permanent occupancies, examples include apartment houses, boarding houses, convents, dormitories, fraternities and sororities, and hotels (non-transient).


3 RCNY §505-01, Apartment and Guest Room Identification and Directional Markings and Signs states

Stipulates the requirements for the design and placement of entrance door room number markings for dwelling units in all Group R-1 and Group R-2 buildings and occupancies, and lobby and hallway corridor directional signs.

The signs and markings required under this section are meant to assist emergency response personnel in locating the dwelling units they need to respond to.





3 RCNY §505-02 Apartment, Guest Room, and Stairwell Fire Emergency Markings

It mandates that all entrance doors to dwelling units and stairwells doors in Group-1 and Group-2 buildings or occupancies have specific markings to aid firefighters in locating such dwelling units, stairwells, and in identifying multi-floor dwelling units.

These markings should be affixed to the door jamb on the hinged side of the door, not more than 12 inches above the floor. For multi-floor dwelling units, additional markings with directional arrows are required.

How to install an Everlux Fire Extinguisher Sign?
Did you know that each year, the United States contends with more than a million fire incidents?

How to install an Everlux Fire Extinguisher Sign?


Fire Extinguisher Safety Signs

Did you know that each year, the United States contends with more than a million fire incidents?

Tragically, these incidents cause a significant number of civilian casualties and injuries and result in billions of dollars in property damage. Even more alarming is the frequency at which fire departments are summoned to respond, 23 seconds per fire on average, with structural fires breaking out approximately every 65 seconds.

Undoubtedly, fire safety stands as an absolute priority in every establishment. At the core of any effective fire safety strategy are functional fire extinguishers. However, merely having fire extinguishers is not enough; they must be easily identifiable and accessible during emergencies. This is where fire extinguisher safety signs come into play.

Understanding Fire Extinguisher Safety Signs:

Fire extinguisher location identification safety signs are used to guide individuals to fire extinguishers promptly. These signs typically include bright colors, clear symbols, and easy-to-understand text, playing a crucial role in fire safety preparedness. The United States Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets the standards for safety signs in US workplaces, including those related to fire safety.


Complying with OSHA Regulations:

Complying with the United States Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards is not only essential for ensuring the safety and well-being of employees but is also a legal requirement. OSHA is a federal agency under the United States Department of Labor, responsible for ensuring safe and healthy working conditions for employees. The agency sets and enforces standards to protect workers across various industries, including fire safety standards related to fire extinguisher safety signs.


Compliance with NFPA (National Fire Protection Association)

NFPA is a global nonprofit organization that develops codes and standards related to fire safety, electrical safety, and other hazards. The association's standards are widely recognized and adopted by various industries, including fire protection, life safety, and emergency response. NFPA 10 is the standard that specifically addresses portable fire extinguishers, including the identification and marking of fire extinguishers. It provides guidelines for clear and informative fire extinguisher safety signs, including their location, size, color, and content, to enable quick identification of extinguishers and their corresponding fire classes.


Location and Placement

Strategic placement of fire extinguisher safety signs is crucial. OSHA mandates the installation of fire extinguisher safety signs in conspicuous locations where fire extinguishers are present. These signs must be easily seen, unobstructed, and placed at a height that ensures clear visibility. High-traffic areas and points of vulnerability should have clearly marked signs for quick access during emergencies.
