Information about fire extinguishers, evacuation routes, and other emergency measures should be displayed prominently. As well as being mandated by law, installing and upkeep fire safety signs is essential for preventing injuries and protecting property.
Clear fire safety signs can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation when people are likely to make rash choices out of fear. Visitors to the building who are not familiar with its fire safety measures can also benefit from these signs. A wide variety of business types can benefit from our stock of fire safety signs. Read on for more info regarding our available fire signs.
Fire Safety Policy & Evacuation Signage
A Fire Safety Policy and Evacuation sign should be in place inside your property to inform tenants, employees and visitors about your fire safety procedures and what to do in the event of an emergency. It should also inform them of their responsibilities and form part of your overall health & safety policy.
Fire Action Signs
The instructions provided by a Fire Action Sign (also called a Fire Action Notice, Fire Evacuation Sign, and Emergency Fire Action Plan) are critical in the event of a fire or other emergency. According to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all commercial buildings must display a Fire Action Notice. However, that notice's specific form and location will vary depending on the building in question.
Results from a fire risk assessment, also mandated by the RRFSO, will determine where you should post your Fire Action Notices. Fire Action Signs should be prominently displayed near all fire alarm call points and the building's final fire exit door in accordance with best practice guidelines.

Emergency Escape Route Signs
The purpose of fire escape signs is to lead people from any location in a building to a safer area (the escape route) and then to the safest possible location (the assembly area) in the event of a fire.
The primary entrance and exit to a building do not require fire escape signs, but secondary exits and complicated secondary exits do. People should not be relied upon to know all the secure exits and entrances to the building.
Similarly, it cannot be assumed that people will know how to get to the assembly area once they have exited the building through the final exit; signs pointing in that direction must be provided.
