Where should push to open door signs be located?

Push to open signs should be clearly visible and located on the area of the door it refers to. For example, if your fire door includes a safety bar, you would install a push bar to open sign on the door, above the safety bar, ensuring the safety bar does not obstruct the user’s view of the sign. Visibility is a serious concern with regards to a pull sign because of smoke and power outages that are likely to be an issue in the event of a fire. This is why we stock a wide range of photoluminescent signs. To learn more, read our guide to fire safety signs now.
