PUSH-EXIT / Emergency exit door


PUSH-EXIT is an innovative concept for the escape exit. There is a small door at the bottom of the traditional emergency exit door. While seeing the sign from the gaps of the door, it indicates the exit being behind the door. People will be very easy to find the way to flee from the fire scene. Our design also guides people take a low crawling posture to get more fresh air. It is easy for people to open the door, especially for children and disabled people. People can simply push it. Moreover, small opening will leak less smoke to the escape stairs.
