FDNY rule 3 RCNY §505-01 sets specific new requirements for apartment and guest rooms. Property Managers/ Owners must be aware of the new local law requirements affecting their properties. All apartment buildings and hotels in New York City must comply with this new rule. At HPDsigns you will find all 3 RCNY 505-01 - Apartment Identification signs required by state, regulations and more.
The law requires that building owners mark apartment entrance doors with emergency markings that serve to assist firefighters, first responders and building occupants to identify apartment numbers in smoke conditions that obscure the regular (eye-level) apartment door numbers signs. These required low mounted apartment door signs ensure that firefighters can more quickly conduct search and rescue operations. This law must be followed by all buildings in New York City classified as Occupancy Group R-1 and R-2 type buildings.
R-l Residential occupancies containing sleeping units where the occupants are primarily transient in nature, include:
Boarding houses (transient)
R-2 Residential occupancies containing sleeping units or more than two dwelling units where the occupants are primarily permanent in nature, include:
Boarding houses (non-transient)
Fraternities and sororities
Live / work units
Vacation timeshare properties

New York City residential property owners and managers must be aware of a new local law requirement affecting their properties.
Residential Owners will need to install newly required, “Apartment and Guest Room Identification and Directional Markings and Signs.”
On June of 2016, the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) adopted a new rule, 3 RCNY §505-01 which sets specific new requirements for apartment and guest room identification signs along with directional markings and exit signs.
All apartment buildings and hotels in New York City must comply with this new requirement for apartment door markings and and other signs by March 30th of 2018.
Property owners and managers are advised to take heed to abide by this new safety requirement as soon as possible. This low-cost measure will help control the response to a blackout, fire or smoke emergency and possibly help prevent loss of life.
Residential building owners are now required to install signs at entrance doors for all dwelling units (apartments, guest rooms and sleeping rooms) in Group R-1 and Group R-2 buildings and occupancies, as well as in their building’s lobby and hallway corridors.
Apartment and Guest Room Identification and Directional Markings and Signs,
3 RCNY §505-01: Identification and Directional Markings for Group 1 and Group 2 Buildings
What is this law ?
This rule outlines requirements for entrance doors and floors so emergency personnel can identify where they’re headed to within a particular building. Requirements specify where signs should be posted, how high above the floor they must be, and what the design of the signs should look like. Specifics can be found in the body of the law starting on page 4.
When is the effective date to post signs in my building ?
Required markings must be posted in the building on or before March 30, 2017. Markings for buildings seeking a final or temporary CO on or after 6/1/16 must be compliant prior to issuance. That is, according to 3 RCNY §505-01
How can I stay in compliance ?
All signs and signage must be maintained and installed in timely manner. In addition,
3 RCNY §505-02: Apartment, Guest Room, and Stairwell Fire Emergency Markings for Group 1 and Group 2 Buildings. What is it?
This regulation outlines emergency markings for R-1 and R-2 dwelling units (apartments, guest rooms, and sleeping rooms) and stairwell doors with exceptions. The markings are low to the ground (no more than 12 inches above the floor) and placed on the door jambs. Diagrams can be seen starting on page 13 of the law.
What is the effective date?
March 30, 2018. New buildings must comply before occupancy.
What does compliance look like?
Same as the above regulation, annual inspections must be held and recorded. Though the law currently doesn’t list any infractions for failure to comply, it’s safe to say that failing to maintain the markings, signage, and perform and record inspections can result in penalties.
