Fire Exit Signs

Under the provisions of the Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) regulations of 1996, all working environments must display clear signage warning people of potential risks and protecting them against danger. All hazardous areas have to be clearly labelled as such to keep all your staff and visitors safe.

Amongst the obligatory signage included in the regulations are Fire Exit signs. People in your premises need to be able to see clearly and quickly where the exit routes to safety are from your building in the event of a fire or fire threat.

fire exit signs

The Health and Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 specify that fire escape signs must display the word “EXIT” (or an immediately recognisable equivalent word) in large, well-lit green letters. Alternatively, or in addition, these signs may depict the familiar green ‘running man’ exiting through an open doorway pictorial adopted in Japan from 1980 onwards.

With these minimum requirements understood, here are some of the options we offer at SafetyShop.com.

Buying Guide

Horizontal rectangular signs can be positioned wherever they’re required and come in a variety of heights and widths. They alert staff to the location of fire exits while simultaneously reminding them to keep the route unobstructed at all times.

At the other end of the scale are items such as our Fire Exit Projecting ‘3D’ Sign (Xtra-Glo). This robust and highly visible rigid plastic sign projects from its wall mounting above a fire exit rather like the corner of a box would. In each of its two surfaces are depicted the green ‘running man’ pictorial above the words “Fire Exit.” The big advantage of this sign is that it highlights the location of the emergency exit even in a blackout caused by a power failure or in smoky conditions, thanks to its highly photoluminescent ‘Xtra-Glo’ characteristics. Because it protrudes, its angled surfaces can be seen from several directions. This UV resistant sign can be used externally as well as internally.

Our Xtra-Glo Aluminium Fire Exit/Keep Clear Sign is equally photoluminescent and therefore visible in dark or smoky conditions. In fact, its photoluminosity is so long lasting and powerful that it illuminates for over 24 hours, exceeding PSP Class D standards. Its superior aesthetics and afterglow properties make it a fitting sign for prestigious buildings, or for transportation, tunnels, marine and offshore applications.

However, we offer a whole raft of Fire Exit signs between these two ends of the spectrum.

FAQs

My premises are large and I have several fire escapes – do you offer multipack versions of your fire exit signs?

Yes, we do. For example, we offer 6-Pack Nite-Glo Fire Exit Man Running Left Signs and 6-Pack Nite-Glo Fire Exit Man Running Right Signs made of either rigid plastic or polyester. While not as luminescent as the Xtra-Glo signs, they deliver over six hours of afterglow after they’ve been activated by a light source.
