Just a small concern,
We have used push bar panic bars on a site, (an assisted living care)
We have used green bars, as I understand it this is correct as they are to stand out.
Is this correct?

The metal bars can be of any colour you choose but it must have a sign.

A sign which reads "Push bar to open" or a pictogram should be provided on the inside face of the door immediately above the horizontal bar, or on the bar if it has a sufficient flat face to take the size of lettering required. The surface area of the pictogram should be not less than 8 000 mm and its colours should be white on a green background. It should be designed such that the arrow points to the operating element, when installed.
