Fire Signage

Ensure the safe evacuation of staff

Having the right sign in the right place will go a long way to ensuring the safe evacuation of your staff in the event of a fire. The range of cost effective fire signage available from Extinguish Fire Solutions not only enables your business to comply with the necessary fire legislations but also benefits from the latest technology in its design.

Everlux Photoluminescent Signs

Extinguish Fire Solutions are proud to be an official distributor, specifier and installer of Everlux photoluminescent safety signs and systems.  This range of signs is widely regarded as being the highest quality on the market and benefit from the brightest photoluminescent performance levels currently available in the UK.
After installation, you can be assured of safety signs that fully meet all of the appropriate standards and legislations required in a commercial establishment, including BS ISO 16069 and the criteria specified under BS ISO 17398. On purchasing Everlux Photolumenscent signs from our team, you are investing in the best of the best and ensuring a heightened level of safety is implemented at your premises.

Escape Route Signs

As a business owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that, from any given point within a building, occupants have clear directional guidance on how to reach a place of safety in the event of an emergency.

The most effective method of achieving this is to invest in the high quality range of escape route signs available from Extinguish Fire Solutions. We only supply signs that utilise the latest technology and will provide long term performance following installation.

With the provision of an effective means of escape required by law under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, there has never been a better time to contact our team and find out what we can do for you.

Escape route signage will be positioned above doors and signs should also be introduced to indicate all changes of direction along the evacuation route. It is imperative that once one sign has been reached the next can already be seen so the route can be clearly followed until a suitable exit is reached.

Our team are vastly experienced in the installation of escape route signage so will work with you to ensure the most effective route is designed, the signs are installed at the correct height and are maintained at predetermined intervals in the future.

Fire Equipment Location Signs

This form of signage must be installed in a way that ensures it is clearly visible from any point within your building so firefighting equipment can be easily identified and utilised as a first response when required.

With non-automatic firefighting equipment location signage required by law under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, you can rely on Extinguish Fire Solutions to supply you with the signs you need, in the locations you need them. With vast experience in this area, we’ll guide you through the process of investing in this form of signage and ensure it is installed correctly and legally.

Our team will make sure your fire safety signs are installed at the right height, of between 1.8m and 2.5m from the floor, or higher dependent on viewing distance or if intermediate objects are impacting upon the sign’s visibility.

If the equipment and location signs are not clearly visible, it is important to bear in mind that a further sign will be required for identification purposes; we will of course assist you with this should it be the case in your premises.

The final area we can assist you with when it comes to this particular form of signage are signs which are placed directly above the firefighting equipment to identify which type of extinguisher to use.

Risk and Hazard Assessment Signs

When identifying different levels of risk and the assessing potential hazards, signs must be positioned to clearly highlight the nature and location of such threats.

At Extinguish Fire Solutions, we have a comprehensive catalogue of risk and hazard assessment signage and stickers which can be implemented in all manner of different areas of a property. In any location where certain actions or behaviour can be dangerous or cause risk, we’ll ensure the necessary prohibition signs are used to reduce the risks associated with that particular type of behaviour.

There is no doubting the fact that using the correct hazard signs in the right locations will reduce the number of dangerous incidents and lower the risk of accidents across your business.

Our team will make sure that special attention is given to placing the signs in clear and visible locations well before a potential hazard is encountered. For example, in an area where fork-lift trucks are in operation, relevant signs will be placed on all doors leading into the area in addition to complimentary signs at higher levels for optimum effect.

We can also provide your property with signs that indicate the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is mandatory or indicate a specific course of action is to be taken.

Viewing Distances

The size of the fire safety sign is chosen according to the maximum viewing distance and the layout of the premises in question.

Our team have a full understanding of the legal requirements in relation to the required viewing distances of your chosen signage, so you can rest assured the signs will be installed in the correct locations at your setting.

Our experts understand that the viewing distance of which a particular size of sign is conspicuous and comprehensible depends on the category of sign, its illumination capabilities and level of detail.

The table below details how to correctly identify the size of a sign relative to the viewing distance.

Extinguish Fire Solutions can supply and install signage where necessary.

Emergency Lighting

In the event of a fire, emergency lighting should be in place to aid the evacuation of a building’s occupants in the event of a mains electricity power cut.

An emergency situation combined with sudden darkness can lead to panic, confusion and increased danger amongst a building’s occupants, so it is imperative that a back-up lighting solution is in place. At Extinguish Fire Solutions, we’ll ensure emergency lighting is implemented throughout your premises so no matter what the situation, a form of lighting will be in place to lead everyone to safety.

Alongside supply and installation, our team can also maintain your lighting to guarantee it is always fit for use whenever required. Servicing of emergency lights is required on a 1, 2 or 3 hour test depending on application, however a minimum 3 hour soak test must be carried out annually as part of your legal responsibilities. We have access to the required equipment to complete this with ease whilst causing the minimum amount of disruption to your everyday activity.

Following installation, we will offer you a service plan that suits your needs and ensure all work, from installation through to regular maintenance, is carried out to British Standard BS5266 for your complete peace of mind.
