Safety Signage

Fire Exit Signs

To comply with health and safety requirements all workplaces should have directional fire signs, fire exit signs and fire route signage. These rigid signs or self-adhesive signs are required to inform staff and visitors of the route they should take to the nearest fire exit in the event of an emergency (we also have the push bar to open signs and other fire door signage).

In the event of an emergency where visibility maybe impaired guiding employees and visitors to the nearest exit becomes even more difficult. Photoluminescent signs are designed for exactly these situations, they'll glow in the dark for upwards of 10 hours and are visible even in complete darkness. All of our photoluminescent signs are constructed from P.S.P.A Class B material and have been tested to BIN 67510 Part 1-4 for after glow performance.

Fire Extinguisher Signs

The locations of emergency fire fighting equipment and alarms should also be clearly identified. Our range of all call point, blanket, extinguisher and fire point or muster station signs comply with the current UK and EU legislation and come in either self-adhesive or rigid polypropylene sign form.

We're also able to offer a strong selection of photo-luminescent fire extinguisher signs. These unique glow in the dark safety signs are visible even in complete darkness, each sign charges using any light source, natural or artificial, when fully charged they'll glow for upwards of 10 hours.

First Aid Signs

In case of an accident or injury at work, the location of the designated first aiders, first aid kits and other first aid information need to be clearly identified, our clear white text and green background signs are available as either a rigid PVC sign or a self-adhesive sign.

ISO 7010 - A Guide To New Sign Symbols

You may notice a number of changes to our Safety Signs. The HSSA adopted the latest ISO EN 7010 symbols outlined in Amendments 1-6. These combine with some of the more familiar BS 5499 symbols to complete the HSSA assured range.

ISO EN 7010 has been devised to create consistent symbols, using new pictograms, which have been judgment tested across various EU countries to ensure the symbols are universally understood and recognised. The new symbols are based upon BS 5499, some have subtle differences and others are extremely different.

Your signs will be supplied to the latest specification, and therefore may look slightly different from the images.
