There is now an ISO Standard for such plans including a recommendation for photoluminescent material with no less than Class C ISO 17398 performance – ISO 23601 – Safety identification – Escape and evacuation plan signs The following is the abstract for users: ISO 23601:2009 establishes design principles for displayed escape plans that contain information relevant to fire safety, escape, evacuation and rescue of the facility's occupants. These plans may also be used by intervention forces in case of emergency. These plans are intended to be displayed as signs in public areas and workplaces. ISO 23601:2009 is not intended to cover the plans to be used by external safety services nor detailed professional technical drawings for use by specialists.
Escape and evacuation plan signs should be designed by experienced designers to make floor plans visible and legible, easy to identify and read and oriented correctly.
