Some eye-catching special red symbols Nanjing appeared on the walls outside the malls of Deji Plaza Phase-II. The locations of these red triangles are actually the rescue paths in case of fire, according to sources.

The designers have specifically mounted a piece of smashable glass in the center of the building glass to make sure fire fighters can immediately smash the glass and enter the building in case of fire. This piece of glass is coated with a red inverted triangle for easy identification.

All fire fighters know the meaning of this red inverted triangle. Fire ladders can always be quickly extended to the height it can reach, whether Floor 30 or Floor 50 is on fire. As long as a red inverted triangle is approached, fire fighters will immediately use fire axes to smash glass and enter the building to save people.

At Deji Plaza, the location where the red triangle symbol is stuck is not a piece of glass, but it is not tightly closed and can be used as an escape path.
