Emergency exit signs
are designed to clearly show people where they should go in the event of a fire
or other emergency
. They should be positioned in such a way so as to show everyone the shortest
and quickest route
out of your premises.
The distance people need to travel to escape your building should be as short as possible, with the distance measured from the farthest point in a room to the door leading to a protected stairway or, if there is no protected stairway, to the final exit from the building.
Current fire exit regulations state that "a fire exit must be clearly marked, kept free of all obstructions and be compliant with all British standards and legislation.
" It is also imperative that fire doors
are clearly indicated
with, for example Fire Door Keep Shut signs
. See our range of Fire Door Signs
for more legends.
All of our fire exit signs
feature a man running
through a doorway
and many are accompanied by a directional arrow
pointing the way to the nearest exit
– be it left, right, up or down. We also have available a range of photoluminescent fire exit signs
. These are designed to glow in the dark when a light source is obscured by power failure or smoke.
