- Exit Doors into and out of the exit path
- Intermediate Exit Doors inside the exit pathway

- Door Frames
- Door Hardware
- Directional Markers to avoid confusion that will slow an evacuation
- Stairs and Ramps to clearly and safely show beginning, course and end.
- Handrails must be visible from the top and must show the course of the stairs
- Landings to show the leading edge (step landing) and perimeter of the exit path
- Obstacles to prevent injury during escape and
to avoid slowing egress during an emergency

Drawing showing glow strips on handrails, along the leading edges of stair steps, and surrounding the door frames. A final exit sign is at floor level next to the door.
Stair nosings, handrails and landings marked with contrasting stripes. This is the preferred method suggested by the NFPA 101 (The Life Safety Code), model codes IBC and IFC, and is required by many local building & fire codes.

An Exit Path is properly marked if the path to safety is reliably and clearly identified and occupants can confidently and quickly find their way to safety during an emergency evacuation.
