Marc,
The General rule is that the exitz have to be readily identified by an exit sign, and that exit signage must be visible along the entire path of egress. Exit signs may be space no more than 100 ft apart.

For more detailed info see the Int'l Building Code, Section 1011

Hope this helps

Don

Marc,
Interesting point,
When exit lights and way point signs are going to be used (as in during a fire, or such), they should be down near a skirting board hieght.
You can't stand up in a smoke/heat-laden atmosphere for long.
The number of Fire deaths caused by this annually would prove this.
Considering that smoke will spread along the upper parts of a compartment in a building and move downwards towards the floor, would suggest to me that our thinking of Escape lighting is backwards.
Just my opinion though. [Linked Image]

You can find exit locations and emergency lighting locations in NFPA 101 Life Safety Code.
