Safety Signs

Fire Fighting Equipment

JALITE photoluminescent firefighting equipment fire safety signs are installed to help responsible persons manage fire safety risk assessment and legislation requirements. In blackout situations where loss of power or smoke can reduce visibility, JALITE photoluminescent firefighting equipment fire safety signs help trained personnel to identify and locate the appropriate equipment. This includes fire alarm call point, fire extinguisher location, fire hose safety signs and more are available.

All JALITE photoluminescent fire safety signs are designed to conform to BS ISO 3864-1:2011, in red to signify firefighting properties. These fire safety signs are available with graphical symbols that conform to BS EN ISO 7010:2020 with or without supplementary text as per BS 5499-10:2014. JALITE photoluminescent firefighting fire safety signs are available in various sizes and application options, to improve comprehension and interpretation.

Quick overview


BS ISO 17398:2004 - Safety colours and safety signs. Classification performance and durability of signs.

This International Standard specifies requirements for a performance-related classification system for safety signs according to expected service environment, principal materials, photometric properties, means of illumination, fixing methods and surface. Performance criteria and test methods are specified in this International Standard so that properties related to durability and expected service life can be characterized and specified at the time of the product’s delivery to the purchaser.

DIN 67 510 Part 1: 2020 - Phosphorescent pigments and products - measurement and marking at the producer.

This standard applies to the measurement and classification by the manufacturer of phosphorescent pigments and the phosphorescent products made from them, for example for marking escape routes and hazards, in buildings, underground thoroughfares, on aircraft and ships, for marking equipment, fittings, utensils, working clothing and safety clothing. This standard specifies a series of conditions for testing the change in luminance over time and for identifying the tested phosphorescent products.

BS ISO 3864-1:2011 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 1: Design principles for safety signs and safety markings.

This part of ISO 3864 establishes the safety identification colours and design principles for safety signs and safety markings to be used in workplaces and in public areas for the purpose of accident prevention, fire protection, health hazard information and emergency evacuation. It also establishes the basic principles to be applied when developing standards containing safety signs.

BS ISO 3864-3:2012 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 3: Design principles for graphical symbols for use in safety signs.

This part of ISO 3864 gives principles, criteria and guidance for the design of graphical symbols for use in safety signs as defined in ISO 3864-1, and for the safety sign element of product safety labels as defined in ISO 3864-2.

BS ISO 3864-4:2011 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Part 4: Colorimetric and photometric properties of safety sign materials.

This part of ISO 3864 establishes the colorimetric and photometric requirements and test methods for the colours of safety signs to be used in workplaces and public areas. It provides the colorimetric and photometric specifications for the named safety and contrast colours prescribed in ISO 3864-­1. The physical requirements that safety signs have to meet are primarily related to daytime colour and normally lit environments. This part of ISO 3864 also includes the colorimetric requirements and test methods for safety signs and phosphorescent material which also operate in unlit environments.

BS 5499-10:2014: Safety signs, including fire safety signs - Guidance for the selection and use of safety signs and fire safety notices.

This part of BS 5499 provides guidance on how to select, install, position and maintain safety signs conforming to BS ISO 3864‑1 and BS EN ISO 7010, excluding escape route signs, to present specific safety information. Fire safety notices are also covered in Annex A. This applicable to all premises, with the exception of private domestic premises. However, it is applicable to the common access areas within multi‑occupied dwellings and is intended for use by building owners, facility managers of premises, safety managers and others responsible for selecting, installing and/or inspecting safety signs.

BS EN ISO 7010:2020 - Graphical symbols - Safety colours and safety signs - Registered safety signs.

BS EN ISO 7010 ensures the appearance of safety signs is consistent and the meaning clear wherever safety signs related to people are needed. The shape and colour of each safety sign conforms to the design principles in ISO 3864-1 and the design of the graphical symbols conforms to the design principles in ISO 3864-3. These safety signs are intended for use only where there is a risk to people. They may appear in workplaces and public areas, safety manuals and notices, product labelling and escape and evacuation plans as appropriate.


Each JALITE sign has a unique code number, after the sign code you will see the size code as shown in the example below.

Code Example: 435T

The expected viewing distance of a safety sign is described according to the Z factor. The Z factor is the ratio of the viewing distance divided by the sign height (graphical symbol height plus geometric shape according to BS EN ISO 7010:2020 image) - Direct line of sight.
