Fire Assembly Signs: Buying Guide


To comply with UK health and safety legislation, it is necessary for companies to display fire safety signs, including fire assembly point signs, in appropriate locations. Using signs to provide information on what to do during an emergency evacuation can help to save people’s lives by ensuring that your premises is evacuated as quickly and safely as possible.

Numbered fire assembly point signs are ideal for larger premises. They should be used for indicating the location of a specific fire assembly point in a building or on a site that has several fire assembly points.

Fire action notices should be displayed in and around your premises in conjunction with fire assembly point signs. These notices will clearly show the location and identity of the nearest fire assembly point for each area or department of your premises.

Aluminium fire assembly point signs are ideal for use outdoors. They are hard-wearing, durable and can be mounted on walls or posts. Furthermore, these signs are rust-resistant.

A combined fire assembly point and keep clear sign provides all the necessary information to alert people that an area has been designated as a fire assembly point and to keep the route clear of obstructions at all times.

Our Nite-Glo fire assembly point signs are photoluminescent and so glow in the dark to provide clear information in the event of a power cut or if smoke is filling the building. They appear white when it’s light and glow brightly in the dark. These signs will stay glowing for over six hours once charged by a sufficient source of light, and are available with a self-adhesive polyester film that has been manufactured using environmentally-friendly methods.

We have a large number of different sign fixings to ensure that, regardless of the surface you want to secure your signs to or the locations you want to display them in, they can be properly affixed.

Sign fixings available include permanent adhesive that can be used outdoors – it is weather and UV-resistant, meaning any damage caused by the elements is kept to a minimum. Additionally, it has exceptional sealing properties.

Other sign holders and fixings include elastic ties for affixing banner fire assembly point signs to a post or fence. These large format signs are ideal for use at outdoor events.

Where a sign is needed but there is no suitable existing surface to attach it to, sign post fixing kits can be used as they provide everything needed to display a sign on a post. They include the post itself, base plate and end caps.

A safety sign like this is vital in order to provide the correct information to people in an emergency.

FAQs


Where should I place fire assembly point signs?

Emergency assembly point signs are the directional and gathering guides that lead people to safety in the event of an emergency. These indicators establish an organised flow and egress.

Consider these requirements when placing fire assembly point signage:

  • Assembly point signs should be positioned approximately 2 metres from the ground. At this height, the sign will be visible to all.

  • These signs should use globally recognised pictograms to avoid ambiguity and confusion. Seton’s professional signage complies with EN ISO 7010 standards.

  • Fire point signage must be used to indicate all emergency exits. These signs should not, however, be affixed to the door or obscured by open doors.

  • Assembly point directional signs must be evenly spaced at consistent distances. Extra signs should be used in areas where the line of sight is obscured.

  • An evacuation meeting point sign must be placed sufficiently high to optimise visibility at the assembly point.


Are fire assembly point signs mandatory?

Fire assembly signs are prescribed by law and therefore mandatory. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 specify that emergency routes and exits must be clearly signposted. Every business must have assembly point directional signage to indicate emergency exit routes, emergency exits and emergency assembly points.

How far away from the building should fire assembly points be?

The location of an assembly point is crucial. A fire meeting point sign must direct evacuees to a location that is:

  • Far enough away to prevent people from being injured by falling debris or collapsing structures.

  • Strategically located so that people do not hinder the operations of fire and rescue workers or other first responders. One incident records how two building occupants were hit and injured by an incoming fire engine due to a wrongly chosen emergency assembly point. An emergency evacuation point sign must direct people to a place of safety.


UK guidelines require an emergency assembly point to be located twice as far from the building as the measured height of the building. Therefore, if a building is 10 metres tall, the emergency assembly point must be 20 metres away from the building. Following this principle enables responsible persons to select the safest emergency assembly points.

Why is fire assembly signage important?

Assembly point signs for evacuation address key criteria in the planning of controlled exit procedures.

This signage:

  • Shows people where to gather when a building has to be evacuated.

  • Enables swift evacuation during a fire or other emergency. Clear fire assembly point signage indicates the fastest and safest exit routes towards gathering points.

  • Assists with curbing panic. When people know where they are supposed to go to get to safety, they panic less.

  • Prevents unnecessary injuries and fatalities by assembling building occupants in a safe place.

  • Gives clear directions as to the correct actions in an emergency and establishes a controlled evacuation flow.

  • Enables responsible persons to perform headcounts and report any missing persons to authorities.
