The fire safety signs deployed by Asco are manufactured from a photoluminescent material, which emit a strong light source under sudden power loss situations. This helps people orientate themselves to ensure they can evacuate efficiently and effectively.
The loss of power and illumination in the event of an emergency can cause panic and confusion for the evacuee. Our products when used effectively locate, identify and instruct on all aspects of fire safety management, can make a major difference in an emergency situation.
These signs have been designed from the recommendations of the current British Standard 5499 to ensure the correct use of colour, graphical symbol, directional information and lower case supplementary text to provide consistent and unambiguous identification of an escape route.
All our signs also conform to BS EN ISO 7010, which has been recently implemented into legislation as the correct standard to follow with regard to the correct graphical symbols to use.
