Emergency Fire Exit Signs
Fire exit signs or Emergency exit signs indicate the direction of the exit in the event of a fire or emergency requiring evacuation of a building.
Fire exit signs need to be positioned to demonstrate the route you want people in your building to take in the event of a fire, effectively being the shortest route to safety. They play a major role in fire safety signage along with alarm call point signs, fire extinguisher signs, fire door signs and assembly points signs.
Which Fire Sign do I need?
Before 2013 the traditional emergency sign used above doorways to identify the escape route, pictured a DOWN arrow. Under BS EN ISO 7010 the DOWN arrow should be used to identify a change of level going down.
Following the introduction of BS EN ISO 7010 the directional arrow above a corridor doorway or exit door, should be the UP arrow. This is to inform the occupants that they need to carry straight on or exit through here.
