Fire Exit Signs

Fire exit signs are devices in public buildings that show the way out. The pictogram variety, with or without the text supplement, is used for most fire exit signs around the world and this sign can also be illuminated, since smoke or failure of electrical lighting may reduce visibility in a fire, usually by one of:

  • Photoluminescent phosphorescence, where light is absorbed from the surroundings and slowly re-emitted

  • Electric light, with a local rechargeable power source

  • Electric light, with the building's emergency lighting circuits providing backup power from a UPS and/or generator in case normal power is lost

Exit signs are mandated by the existing fire regulations to tell people where they must go to get out of your place of work. All exit routes should be clearly marked using signs that comply with the current fire regulations. The most important thing about modern exit signs is that they all include a graphic symbol. Signs that do not include this symbol and simply have words on them are now no longer legal, and need to be updated.

Different Styles Of Exit Sign

We suggest you use suitable words to help people understand what the sign means, although modern exit signs do not need to have any words. There are two signs types currently allowed by UK Fre Regulations:

  1. Style 1: British Standard, which shows the moving person going through a doorway

  2. Style 2: European Standard, which shows a separate moving person and a door symbol

The British Standard is the one that is preferred and is commonly available for safety signs.

Just like the provision of fire aid kits and fire extinguishers, all areas of your workplace need to have fire exit signs installed, especially areas that are used by the public. Place a sign over every 'final exit' door, such as the main entrance or a fire exit door to start with. Also, place signs over every exit door in each main room in the building.

It is now a requirement in many countries that all new commercial buildings include well-marked emergency exits. Well-designed emergency exit signs are necessary for emergency exits to be effective. In the United Kingdom, signs are required to bear a picture or symbol that clearly illustrates the sign. Office buildings can often have floor plans on display showing exit paths in red and regular hallways in black.

Signs must not be too high and need to be plainly seen in the room. It might be worth considering using photoluminescent signs, which glow in the dark, if you do not have any emergency lighting installed. Other signs might be necessary to tell people that they need to change direction or move along a corridor. In listed and other similar buildings, it might not be possible to fit exit signs because they will affect the historic features of the building. It might be acceptable to use temporary signs for special events in these cases.

Signs may be propped over doors or fixed using small fixings that cannot be seen normally (such as small nails). They should be in place for as much of the time as possible, especially where the public use the building, although they can be removed if they need to be.

In today's world one of the hottest issues is how to move people in an urgent situation quickly and in safety to a secure refuge. When exit signs are integrated with directional sounders and a fire alarm system in a building, it becomes easier to identify egress routes. Europe is now moving quickly in the direction of voice evacuation, which has been at the forefront of people movement in the USA for years but is never likely to replace fire exit signs.
