Fire Exit & Fire Door
Fire Exit signs are a complete range of fire exit signs which wherever they are displayed will provide indications of where the buildings occupants must go in the event of an emergency to escape from the building by being directed to the nearest possible fire exit.
People usually leave premises by the same way that they enter or by routes which are familiar to them. Alternative exits (ie all emergency exits and any exits not in normal use) should be clearly indicated so that people know there are additional ways to leave. In addition, the provision of well-signposted exits in full view will give a feeling of security in an emergency.
Make sure the fire exit sign is displayed immediately above the exit opening or, if this is not possible, choose a position where the sign can be clearly seen and is least likely to be obstructed or obscured by smoke.
