Anyone aware of the worldwide norms for escape patch on commercial aircraft....its black on B737s & red on A320s.
Any reference to the rule.

As far as I can tell, there is nothing in the ICAO Annexes covering this, so it would be up to each country's regulatory authority.

Anyone having access to the FAA reference to it.

FAR part 25.810

Quote:
(c) An escape route must be established from each overwing emergency exit, and (except for flap surfaces suitable as slides) covered with a slip resistant surface. Except where a means for channeling the flow of evacuees is provided—

(1) The escape route from each Type A or Type B passenger emergency exit, or any common escape route from two Type III passenger emergency exits, must be at least 42 inches wide; that from any other passenger emergency exit must be at least 24 inches wide; and

(2) The escape route surface must have a reflectance of at least 80 percent, and must be defined by markings with a surface-to-marking contrast ratio of at least 5:1.

No reference to color. The markings just have to contrast with the background significantly.

linky thing



Rule #176. Any device that can crawl across the table on medium, does not need to be brought into the office.
