Egress Group Pty Ltd is an Australian owned company and the owners of the ‘Accessible Means of Egress icon’.
The Accessible Exit Sign Project has been developed by Lee Wilson, Director of Egress Group Pty Ltd. The intention is to promote universal access and egress for all building occupants. Everyone deserves a safe means of egress from a building during an emergency, including those that may face some extra challenges negotiating an egress route.
At Egress Group we believe it’s time for a change. A change in attitudes, perceptions and legislation regarding exit signs in buildings. We believe all buildings need to show the egress route from a building, with clear, unambiguous signage showing the path to safety. This includes the use of the ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’ as a universal design best practice.
Egress Group now manages the licensing arrangements in the use of the ‘Accessible Means of Egress Icon’. By doing so, we can maintain consistency in design, promote users of the Icon and use income generated to further promote the need for inclusive and accessible egress routes.
