Exit Signs by State - Comply with Your State and Local Regulation

There is often confusion over which colors are allowed when choosing an Exit sign for your building. Exit sign requirements vary by state and municipality, which is why it's important to check with your Fire Marshall to see whether Green Exit Signs or Red Exit Signs are required in your building. The information below is for general guidance, only. For many, however, it is also important to get a “sense” of any color preference – so that your building is as consistent as possible with others in your area. Even though the European Union generally uses Green Exit Signs (Red is used to specify prohibited actions), our UL 924 standards allow either Green Exit signs or Red Exit signs. Yet, localized codes often specify one or the other.

Colorado State Compliant EXIT Signs
State Summary
Colorado accepts both red and green Exit signs, but some localities may require green Exit signs in particular. From the code at University of Colorado- Boulder Facilities Management: "The word "EXIT" must be in high contrast with the background and must be clearly discernible when the exit sign illumination means is or is not energized. If an arrow is provided as part of the exit sign, the construction must be such that the arrow direction cannot be readily changed." Colorado requires particular-colored signs based on the town or municipality, so it is best to consult your local fire marshal for the best recommendation/requirement.
