Fire Exit Signage
A fire exit signage is a device located in any public facility such as a building, aircraft, etc. and represents the location of the nearby emergency exit in case of fire. Fire exit signage provides important information about the place or zone at the time of emergency fire exits. For this reason, the fire exit sign is readable and visible even in emergency conditions such as darkness or smoke.
There are mainly two types of fire exit signage available. One is illuminated fire exit signage that offers an effective way to ensure clear visibility of your fire escape signs. The second one is photoluminescent fire escape signs or fire safety symbols that offer a great solution to the problem of low-light areas and also in the event of power failure. Fire exit signage is available in various materials, styles, and finishes that help to satisfy both facility and fire safety legal requirements.
Now the question is, what sizes available in the market? The size of the fire exit sign (luminescent fire escape) is based on the maximum distance from where the sign can be viewed. For instance,
· Viewing distance up to 10 meters - 300mm x 100mm KD
· Viewing distance up to 15 meters - 450mm x 150mm NF
· Viewing distance up to 20 meters - 600mm x 200mm RG
· Viewing distance up to 40 meters - 1200mm x 400mm
However, for illuminated fire exit signs, the viewing distance will be doubled.
