Fire Door Signs

Fire exit doors should be clearly signposted and labelled to ensure their effectiveness as part of your evacuation procedures. Photoluminescent fire door signs ensure that fire exit doors can be found and identified in situations of reduced visibility – such as a power failure; smoke filling a corridor, stairs or room; or simply at night.

Fire door signs can give clear instructions on how to open fire doors, saving valuable time when exiting a building in an emergency. They also offer instructions on how fire exits should be maintained on a day-to-day basis, such as keeping them locked if necessary and free from obstruction.

Fire Exit Door Signs: Buying Guide

Fire doors come in many shapes and sizes and with a variety of operating mechanisms, such as panic bolts or panic latches. Therefore it is important to clearly specify their use with universally recognised signage. By their very nature many fire doors are also not easily recognisable as they are kept closed and are quite anonymous in their appearance. Because they are not used regularly they can be easily overlooked unless they are clearly labelled as fire exits.

It is therefore very important that clear fire door signage is used to draw attention in emergency situations to the location of fire doors and their operating mechanisms to ensure a smooth and safe evacuation from a building.

Fire Door Signage Requirements

Using clear and easily recognised fire door signs goes some way in fulfilling the mandatory requirements of fire safety regulations relating to places of work and public spaces. According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all fire exit doors must carry a “fire door, keep shut” sign.

Depending on the type of exits you have on your premises, you may also need to provide instructions on how to operate the door, or indicate that a door opens automatically.

Fire door signs can also be used to highlight obstacles and hazardous locations, as well as giving straightforward instructions on how to open the fire door. In moments of stress when action needs to be taken quickly, a simple sign telling you how to open a door can save valuable time in an emergency.

Signs to consider for instructing building occupants on how to open a fire door can include:-
Push bar to open
In case of fire break glass
Pull to open
Turn to open
Push bar to open

This list is by no means exhaustive, but if you cannot find a fire door sign that exactly meets your needs then we can provide you with a custom-signs service. All you need to do is specify the size of your sign, its material and the message you require.

Other fire door signs that are essential in ensuring quick and easy exit from your building in an emergency should include instructions to keep fire doors clear of any obstructions and should be positioned both indoors and out. The latter is especially important if your fire door leads into your car park so that drivers know they should never park in front of fire doors.

Fire Assembly Points

Once everyone has safety exited your building in an emergency, you need to make sure that they then know where to gather for your fire marshal to do a head count. Fire assembly signs are intended to do just this. Our outdoor fire assembly signs can be fixed to posts in your car park, meaning that you are not restricted on where you can create your muster points as there is no need to have a wall in the area onto which to affix the sign.
