Fire extinguisher signs are important safety features in buildings, providing clear instructions on the types of fire extinguishers and their appropriate uses. This type of fire safety sign plays a crucial role in ensuring that individuals can effectively combat fires in their early stages.
The specific fire alarm signs you need for your building in the UK will depend on the type of building you have and the level of fire risk. However, there are some general requirements that apply to all buildings.
There are five main types of fire extinguishers in the UK:
- Dry powder
- Wet chemical
Good fire extinguisher signage should be large enough to display information, so it can be read quickly. In addition, it should be brightly coloured while adhering to the classification colour code for fire extinguishers.
