Abstract

The evacuation of disabled persons from multi-storey buildings requires, typically, the provision and use o Areas of Refuge (AoR). Building complexity, together with the low level of detail in the regulatory guidance- relating to AoR signage, may lead to inappropriate signage system designs. In turn. this may lead to difficulties in locating and or identifying AoR. This paper illustrates the use of the Theory of Affordances a framework for assessing AoR signage system design.
