Fire safety signage sizes

Guest Guest

Recommended Posts

I just been elected Health and Safety rep.I would like to what would be the reasonable size for fire safety signs as we find it hard to identify the signs under normal conditions.Is there a legal requirement as to what the minimum size shouldbe.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated

Does the block of flats only have a single direction of escape and a single stair? If so no exit signage is required.

Otherwise it should conform with BS5499-4 for positioning and size and of course should include the BS EN ISO 7010 'running man' pictogram in white on green with a suitable white on green directional arrow.

See http://www.safelincs.co.uk/fire-escape-route-signs-from-jalite/ as it includes info on sign sizes for different viewing distances
