Abstract

This paper presents analytical assessment of the factors involved in visibility and legibility of exit signs in commercial buildings. The approach followed here is to assess the task of reading an exit sign in terms of the basic visual parameters which characterize seeing and legibility, namely, visual acuity, contrast, and threshold illumination.
