Not in IBC?


Ok appears both signs are required


  • On doors that swing toward pedestrians when they attempt to travel in the wrong direction, BHMA A156.10 requires an international “DO NOT ENTER” sign, also mounted at 50 inches +/- 12 inches above the floor and a minimum of 6 inches in diameter, with a red circle with the words “DO NOT ENTER” within the circle.

The signage requirements of A156.10 apply to swinging, sliding, and folding doors, and the signage must be visible from both sides of the door. Currently, the standard requires signage stating “AUTOMATIC DOOR”

And the sliding doors may swing or break away for egress......Which is probably why both are included in:
