Below is standard language that I include on the majority of my office/retail properties. You can of course, make any changes to conform it to each property. Hope this helps.
Thank you.
A. The entrances, corridors, passages, stairways and elevators shall be under the exclusive control of the Landlord and shall not be obstructed, or used by the Tenant for any other purpose than ingress and egress to and from the Premises; and the Landlord shall have the right to control ingress and egress to and from the Building at all times.
B. Safes, furniture, boxes or other bulky articles shall be carried by the freight elevator, or by the stairways, or through the windows of the Building, in such a manner and at such hours as may be directed by the Landlord. Safes and other heavy articles shall be placed by the Tenant in such places only as may be first specified in writing by the Landlord.
C. The Tenant, shall not place nor permit to be placed any signs, advertisements or notices in or upon any part of the Building, and shall not place merchandise or show-cases in front of the Building, without the Landlord’s written consent.

The Landlord shall have the right to exclude or eject from the Building, animals of every kind, except guide dogs, bicycles or any other wheeled vehicle except wheelchairs, and all canvassers and other persons who conduct themselves in such a manner as to be, in the judgment of the Landlord, an annoyance to the tenants or a detriment to the Building.

If more than two keys for any door are desired, the additional number shall be paid for by the Tenant.

I. The Tenant shall not allow any curtains, filing cases nor other articles to be placed against or near the glass in the partitions between the Premises and the corridors of the Building, without first obtaining the written consent of the Landlord.
