These illuminated emergency exit signs are designed to be placed above any designated emergency exit. These safety signs are used to indicate the location of fire exits, escape routes and assembly points. Please note that emergency exit signs are a requirement for public events. We strongly suggest using them for private events too.
They are fitted with LED lamps and have the standard legend on them. Complete with 16A plugs and sockets to allow for two or more to be connected with 16A extension cables. We suggest that the fixtures are on a separate power feed to any other lights or equipment.
Directional arrows should usually be provided to indicate the direction of travel. The exception to this is where it could cause confusion, for example, vomitory exits in stadiums or storey exits opening directly onto a half landing, or within a cinema or theatre where the escape route signs are internally illuminated. In these instances, the arrow element signs may be omitted when the signs are sited immediately above the exits.
People usually leave premises in the same way that they enter or by routes which are familiar to them. Alternative exits such as all emergency exits and any exits not in normal use should be clearly indicated. Making sure that all the exit routes in a building are well signposted and visible will give a feeling of security in an emergency.
