You will find our fire safety signs broken down into categories for ease of use and to help you find the exact sign you need for any specific circumstance. So let's now get into the details of our fire exit signs UK format and their different purposes and use cases.
Format and Appearance
Emergency escape signs are printed using the standard ISO colour scheme of a green background with white pictograms and white lettering. Emergency escape signs featuring the universal running man symbol switch things around and depict the running man in green against a white background to distinguish it from the rest.
Other common features for these signs include direction arrows and the words fire escape printed in white against the green background. This category of signage is always square or rectangular.
Also included in this category are combination signs that add a mandatory section to the fire exit safety sign. Printed in the blue and white ISO colours that depict a mandatory instruction, this section of the sign informs people that the fire exit must be kept clear at all times.

Signs are available in strong peel and stick vinyl for convenient placement on a smooth flat surface like a wall or a door. If you need something hard-wearing and moveable or weatherproof, we offer them in 1mm thick rigid acrylic. Use a strong adhesive, double-sided mounting tape, or screws and fixings for these.
Here at Puffin Plastics, we offer sizes that range between A3 and A5 as standard. Also included in our standard size offering is the 450×150mm rectangular version when you need a sign that is tall and noticeable but do not have a wide enough space to use the A5 option. You should also know that as manufacturers, we can always design and print a bespoke sign to your specifications.

The Statutory Position
A fire within commercial premises represents a huge potential danger to employees and visitors. Governed by strict regulations, it is no wonder that there are more safety signs related to fire safety measures than any other aspect of health and safety in the workplace.
The provision of the mandatory fire exits to make sure that visitors and employees have readily available escape routes is an essential aspect of workplace safety. But without clear directions provided by prominently displayed and highly visible fire exit signs to let people know where they are, they would do little to mitigate the danger.
As well as a moral obligation, businesses also have a legal obligation to display these signs. If during a statutory inspection, it is decided that signage is inadequate, there could be financial penalties and even temporary closure of the premises until problems have been sorted out.
Mounting and Displaying
Regulations require that these fire emergency signs need to be clearly visible from all areas and in a quantity that meets Health and Safety requirements according to the size and complexity of the premises. For larger premises, it is important that signs are big enough that they can be seen from the furthest point of the room.
Directions indicating fire escape signs must be visible everywhere in a building and then the Fire Exit sign itself mounted on or adjacent to the door or exit point people can use to evacuate the building.
