I have has some experience putting in FACP and all the devices but this is the first time I have seen an EMERGENCY EXIT sign located one foot off the floor.

Good luck being able to pull the box if you're only as tall as the exit sign. bugeyed

I remember seeing several years ago that a lot of attention was being given to low level illuminated emergency markings. One company made an electroluminescent tape that was to be installed around the walls at about the height you see that exit sign at. I believe it had arrows or something to direct people to the exits.

The reason for all this is because when the room or corridor fills with smoke to fills from the top down. People trying to escape have to crawl on their hands and knees in order to breathe and what could be dark smoke would make ceiling mounted signage impossible to see.

I don't think there is any national code that mandates low level evacuation signage and likely what you found was required by local code.

It does make sense that a low mounted exit sign would be visible if a corridor was filled with smoke. On the other hand, the fixture could be subject to damage due to it's close proximity to the floor.

That's what I told my wife. First example of seeing it in action.

That's why that company was making the electroluminescent tape system. Pretty damage resistant.

I've seen exit signs mounted at floor level for a number of years...always in hotels.
