Water ID Sign Photoluminescent


Fire extinguisher ID signs identify which substance is contained within an extinguisher and the type of fires each fire extinguisher should and should not be used on.


The Water fire extinguisher ID sign indicates which type of fire the Water extinguisher can put out and which it cannot. Different forms of fire call for different extinguishers. Fire extinguisher ID signs are key in allowing quick recognition of which fire extinguisher is which. This then allows an untrained user to see which type of fire each of the extinguishers can combat. This quick recognition is the key point in any emergency situation and could be the difference between life and death.

A symbol to show that the point is a fire extinguisher point is all that’s required at each fire extinguisher. The upgrade to a fire extinguisher ID sign is for helping the user who will operate the extinguisher decipher whether they are using the correct extinguisher for that type of fire.
