Transition and Floor Perimeter Demarcation Lines

The requirements for the use of Luminous Egress Path Markings are established in Section 1025 of the International Building Code Chapter 10 – Means of Egress

This chapter mandates that Approved luminous egress path markings delineating the exit path shall be provided in interior exit stairways, interior ramps and exit passageways in high-rise buildings of Group A, B, E, I, M and R-1 occupancies.

Stair landings and other floor areas within interior exit stairways, interior exit ramps and exit passageways, shall be marked with solid and continuous demarcation lines on the floor, on the walls or a combination of both.


In this example we are using wall perimeter demarcation lines which drops to the floor.
To assure the continuity of the system the floor demarcation stripe stretches in all the extension of the door and meets the wall demarcation stripe.

The floor perimeter demarcation lines must be installed as close as practicable to the wall to a maximum distance of 4” as illustrated in the left.
