Conventional exit signage
and dynamic theatre-style exit

for Cinema application


Palace Cinemas comprises over 180 screens across 24 locations nationally that offer sophisticated comfort. The venues are eclectic, from heritage-listed art deco darlings to modernist jewels, but are designed with sophisticated comfort and indulgence in mind.

Palace Cinema Como in Melbourne undertook recent refurbishments including the addition of three new cinemas and lounge/bar adjacent to the existing foyer and general cinemas.


The Challenge

With the new refurbishment, an evacuation plan was developed by the consulting fire safety engineers to improve the overall egress system throughout the cinema complex. They identified the need for alternate egress paths in the event of various fire scenarios throughout the cinema.


The Solution & Result

The evacuation plan implemented included conventional exit signs and dynamic theatre-style exit signs throughout the cinema.

The CleverEVAC dynamic signage used, is controlled by the fire detection system, and is activated either in “Dynamic GREEN” or “Dynamic RED X” mode, dependent on the five different fire scenarios detailed in the fire report.

In total, fourteen CleverEVAC Dynamic signs were installed in the cinema complex to complete the solution.

Palace Cinema Como is now fully refurbished with the CleverEVAC solution installed by Jdtec based on Scientific Fire Services fire report.

When not activated into dynamic mode, CleverEVAC Dynamic Exit signs operate in normal conventional mode, and comply with the AS/NZS 2293.3 emergency lighting standards.
