In order to conform to current UK legislation, buildings must maintain the appropriate fire fighting equipment, and display clear fire extinguisher signs.


The fire safety signs available from The Sign Shed are fully compliant with current British Standards (BS5499).

The EEC Directive (EEC/92/58) from 1992 introduced graphical symbols, or pictograms (the running man), as the main element of the fire safety sign, alongside simple text.
