Fire Signage

Fire Extinguisher Sign Positioning Guide as per AS2444:

What is the correct height for fire extinguisher signs?

  • Fire extinguisher location sign must be visible from 20m. If this is not possible with a flat wall sign, consider off-wall type.
  • Fire extinguisher location sign must be mounted at least 2000mm above the floor.
  • Fire extinguisher chemical sign must be located immediately above the fire extinguisher.

Fire Door Signage:

A broad range of Fire Door Signage is available from Area Safe Products. To help avoid liability, it is recommended that the building certifier or fire services engineer provides the necessary professional advice for your project.

The following points are typical examples of what may be required to comply with the BCA Section D2.23 and AS1319-1994. This advice may not apply to every situation and is based on industry experience. The information provided is not to be considered as exhaustive, binding or legal advice outside of what you may obtain through professional consultancy.

1. Fire doors leading into a fire stair from inside the building require signage as follows:

a. ‘Fire Safety Door, Do Not Obstruct, Do Not Keep Open’ – on approach side of door only (All states of Australia).

b. In NSW, an ‘Offences Relating to Fire Exits’ sign is also required on approach side, normally placed adjacent to (but not within) the doorway.

2. Fire doors leading to outside the building require compliant fire door signage as follows:

a. ‘Fire Safety Door, Do Not Obstruct’ – on both sides of egress door (All states of Australia).
