Fire Exit & Directional Signs

Fire Escape Signs

Fire exit signs display information which informs people where they should go in the event of a fire or other emergency. These signs help to show everyone the shortest and quickest route to exit your premises and could prove the difference between life and death in the event of an emergency. Directional arrows or a running man symbol accompany the word fire exit which will direct people safely off the premises. Make sure all your fire exits and escape routes are clearly marked and are free from obstruction at all times.
