Key Features and Spec
- 150mm x 200mm
- Designated area to display the fire assembly point
The Fire Action (EC) sign is a photoluminescent sign that measures 150mm x 200mm. This sign is designed to provide clear and easy-to-read instructions for how to respond in case of a fire emergency. The photoluminescent material allows the sign to be easily visible in low light conditions, making it an ideal choice for use in buildings and other facilities where visibility in emergency situations is critical.
According to UK legislation do you need a fire action (EC) sign?
Yes, according to UK legislation, a fire action sign is required in all non-domestic buildings. This is specified under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The sign should be prominently displayed and provide clear instructions on what to do in the event of a fire.
Where should one of these signs be located?
In the UK it is advised to install this sign at the final fire exits at ground level. Another common location is in places where there is high footfall, like the reception or the canteen. However, as important as these signs are, in truth not many staff members will actually read them. More often than not, the only time this sign will ever be read is in an emergency – usually just after someone hits the fire alarm call point to raise the alarm. This is why one of the most popular locations for one of these signs is near or adjacent to a fire alarm call point.
