Fire Alarm Signs

What are fire alarm signs?

In the event of a fire, it is crucial that occupants, employees and guests of the premises are made aware as quickly as possible. This helps ensure a safe and swift evacuation to the fire assembly point, potentially saving many lives. As a result, fire alarm signs are designed to be highly visible and show people where the nearest fire alarm point is located and how to activate them.
This means if a guest, or anyone who is unfamiliar with the layout of the building, should still be able to locate the fire alarm and alert the entire building.Their importance makes fire alarm signs essential for complying with British Standards, which is essential for your business and the safety of those within your premises. We stock a wide range of fire alarm signs specifically designed to maintain visibility in an emergency where smoke or power outages may occur, including photoluminescent fire alarm signs, glow-in-the-dark projecting fire alarm call point signs and much more.

Where should fire alarm signs be located?

You should place fire alarm signs at every point in your premises where there is a fire alarm call point. In addition, they should be accompanied by a fire action notice, which gives clear instructions of what actions to take in the event of a fire, including sounding the alarm, evacuating safely, alerting fire services and more. According to British Standards, these signs should be placed between 1.8m and 2.2m off the ground, ensuring they are in a high place and are clearly visible.


Are fire alarm signs required by law?

Yes, fire alarm signs are required by law and are referenced in the British Standards as well as the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO). The RRFSO stipulates that fire alarms must be indicated by a sign, while the British Standards highlight the importance of a high location.
