Maximum Occupancy Signs
Need Occupancy Signs for Your Building?
Throughout the United States, many cities have ordinances requiring business and municipal buildings to have capacity or load requirements. These designations permit a certain amount of people to safely occupy a given space. In some cases, such as fires or other emergency situations load capacities will stipulate that “X” number of persons should be able to exit a building in a timely fashion. These kinds of occupancy designations are often mandated by law for public safety.
Generally, property owners are responsible for having proper notice of maximum capacity throughout their property. For this reason, building inspectors are often appointed by local cities and municipalities to ensure that the guidelines outlined by the International Code Council for building occupancy rules are being followed.Read More
Find a Maximum Occupancy Sign Wherever People Gather
Because they are often required by law, these kinds of maximum occupancy signs are visible almost everywhere; schools, office buildings, restaurants and even malls. Every so often, government inspectors are deployed to examine all these kinds of buildings and offices to make sure they are up to code.
Maximum Occupancy Signs not only prevent fire hazards, but can eliminate the threat of emergencies as well, such as the collapse of decks or overhangs, by reducing unnecessary strain on structural integrity.
Although regulations vary widely by area, maximum occupancy signs must typically also be mounted in rooms where substantial amounts often gather. These can include areas such as office conference rooms, movie theaters or hotel lobbies. Maximum Occupancy regulations are especially important in these populated rooms and should be posted to be as visible as possible.
