Fire Equipment Signs

Fire equipment signs are a necessity for any business or public premises under the Safety Signs and Signals Regulations 1996. Not only do they help advise occupants on the location of vital fire equipment, but they also help direct firefighters in the event of an emergency. 

We have a huge range of fire equipment signs that meet European and British Safety Standards. This includes fireman and riser signs, fire fighting equipment signs, fire point marking signs and gas fire system signs. 

Constructed from durable Jalite AAA plastic, our fire fighting equipment signs are designed for optimum longevity and visibility. Their photoluminescent coating also ensures they will always be seen, even during a power outage. 

Check out our different fire signage categories below to find the signs best suited to your building. All at the lowest prices on the market – guaranteed.

  • What are the different types of safety signs?

    Fire safety equipment is coloured in a distinct 'signal red' to comply with British and European Standards (BS EN3). To accompany this, fire equipment signs should also have the same bright red background (at least 50% of the surface area), with white graphics and symbols.

    Red is the universal colour associated with danger and fire, as per fire safety standards. It is also easy to spot in emergencies and low-light environments.

  • Are fire equipment signs a legal requirement?

    The Safety Signs and Signals Regulations 1996 state that fire fighting equipment should be easy to identify and access, accompanied by relevant signage in the building. Directional arrows and fire fighting equipment signs should be used to help building occupants find hidden or difficult-to-spot equipment.

    All fire equipment signs should also adhere to the correct design and formatting, as outlined in the regulations. It also clearly states that signage should be large enough for occupants to easily determine the location of the fire equipment. All of our fire equipment signs meet the BS EN ISO 7010 standards.

  • What are the categories of fire signage?

    There are five key categories of fire signage, according to international standards. Businesses should have them all in place in order to comply with the current regulations and ensure the safety of staff and occupants. The five categories are:

    • Prohibition signs: highlighting actions that are forbidden due to the risk of fire
    • Mandatory fire signs: highlighting actions that must be followed to improve fire safety  
    • Warning signs: highlighting hazardous areas or equipment
