What are Photoluminescent Fire Exit Signs?

Photoluminescent Fire Exit Signs are glow-in-the-dark emergency exit signs.  These signs are crucial in achieving compliance with fire regulations and can be the foundation of a good fire safety and evacuation plan, directing all on-site personnel towards the nearest emergency exit in a clear and easy to understand way.

Photoluminescence adds an extra level of safety and versatility - these signs glow in the dark for use in low-light and dark environments as well as in case of a power outage.

How do Photoluminescent Fire Exit Signs Work?

Our range of photoluminescent signs have a glow-in-the-dark finish, which makes them visible when the lights go out suddenly. They can easily be fixed to an appropriate wall or door, and utilise a combination of arrows, words and easily-recognised symbols to inform staff and customers where to go in an emergency.

Direction signs are designed to instantly show where the nearest exit is, whilst door signs offer instructions on whether to push or pull a door or if a button or bar needs to be used to exit.  Assembly point signs ensure that once evacuated, people can be easily grouped and accounted for.

The signs are a very distinctive and easily recognisable with their classic green and white colour scheme.

What is the benefit of using Photoluminescent Fire Exit Signs?

A well-placed fire exit sign is a great way of reducing panic and confusion at the time of an emergency, and can help to save lives and minimise injuries by directing people in a clear manner.  In the case of a power-cut or if there is a low-light environment, photoluminescence means these signs are still effective.

These signs form a key part of compliance with building, fire and health and safety regulations.
