For example, in any assembly occupancy, hotel, department store, or other building subject to transient occupancy, the need for signs will be greater than in a structure subject to permanent or semi-permanent occupancy by the same people, such as an apartment house where the residents are presumed to be familiar with exit facilities because of regular use thereof.
