Health and safety signs play a vital role in communicating workplace information. They alert visitors, employees and customers to areas that require caution, minimizing the risk of an accident occurring in the workplace. They highlight potential hazards and they guide people to safety in times of emergency.
We have been making safety signs for a range of sectors including retail, commercial and health and education for over 20 years.
The different types of safety signs include;
Fire equipment signs, which show the location of fire fighting equipment. Mandatory signs, that display a course of action which must be taken. Prohibition signs, which highlight behaviours that are prohibited. Hazard signs that alert possible danger, warning and caution and safe condition signs such as escape routes and safety equipment.
The Safety signs that we make are available in the following range of materials & fixings.
Self adhesive Vinyl: Sign message printed directly onto a flexible PVC with a high tack adhesive backing. Suitable for both interior & exterior use. Ensure the sign is fixed to a smooth, clean & non-porous surface.
Rigid plastic (1mm/3mm/5mm): Rigid, lightweight & inexpensive – suitable for both interior & exterior use. Either 1mm, 3mm or 5mm thick, depending on the size of the sign.
Rigid PVC plastic – self adhesive: 1mm PVC with self adhesive backing for easy fixing.
Photoluminescent PVC: Charged by ambient light these signs immediately illuminate in sudden darkness. An excellent material for directional fire escape & fire equipment signs.
Polycarbonate: A very tough, durable material that will withstand wilful destruction. It has a good fire rating.
11g Aluminium – wall fixed: A lightweight durable material for both interior & exterior use. The material of choice for most sign makers.
