Regulations require employers to use a safety sign where there is a significant risk to health and safety that has not been avoided or controlled by methos under other relevant law, provided that use of a sign can help reduce risk. The regulations apply to all workplaces and to all activities where people are employed.

Fire Safety Signs

Having the right signs in the right place will help ensure the safe evacuation of staff in the event of a fire and will also help to comply with the regulations.

Hallmark Fire’s range of fire and safety signs incorporate the latest technology to provide cost effective solutions.

Photoluminescent Signs

Photoluminescent escape route signs are made from a zinc sulphide compound, which is charged by natural or artificial white light. They retain their luminous power for several hours to allow occupants to evacuate buildings quickly and safely in the dark and can be recharged any number of times.

Low location lighting uses a similar principle. Directional indicators on floors and walls glow in the dark to point out a clear, unambiguous and continuous escape route.

Having illuminated guidance low down - below the level where smoke would collect in the event of a fire - provides a major safety benefit.
