Minimum distance between fire door signs

Hi There,

I am an architectural assistant for a station redevelopment project.

Across the station we have some issues regarding two different signs being installed too close to each other. One sign is "Fire door keep shut sign" and the other is a prohibition "No authorised access" sign.

Is there a guideline or recommendation for the distance to be kept between the two signs above ?

I am not aware of any such guidance and would think it does not matter how close they are as they are not contradictory, unless that fire door leads to a means of escape. Then you would have to provide a bespoke sign stating something like "No authorised access except in an emergency" also you would have fire exit sign as well.

Check out Guide to fire safety signs and signing.
