Wording - FIRE EXTINGUISHER KEEP CLEAR (ARROW DOWN SYMBOL)
What does OSHA say?
OSHA requires extinguishers to be identified so that they are readily accessible to employees during emergencies. With this in mind, fire extinguisher signs should be mounted free from obstructions at all times to enable quick identification of extinguishers. Ideally, fire extinguisher signs should be mounted at eye level, but these can be mounted higher if obstructions at eye level are present.
What sign is right for you?
Vinyl Adhesive – If the surface you plan to use is smooth then this material is a perfect the solution. 3 mil vinyl signs have an aggressive adhesive for permanent mounting and great on drywall, flat metal or other smooth surfaces. Full adhesive backing ensures a secure flush mounting.
Plastic – This universal material is lightweight, flexible and durable for most industrial applications. Four 7/32" corner holes provide secure installation (mounting screws sold separately). Thick .060" plastic is flexible enough to conform to curved surfaces. Great for mounting on concrete or cinder block walls, corrugated steel walls or fencing.
Aluminum – Heavy gauge .063" aluminum signs are our most popular sign material. These long lasting signs will never rust or corrode. Four 7/32" corner holes provide secure installation (mounting screws sold separately). Aluminum is perfect for heavy industrial applications including areas with high chemical exposure, outdoor applications and vandal resistant.
Magnetic – If you have a metal surface consider our magnetic material option. It can easily be applied and removed as needed. Ideal for steel doors, tanks, drums, cabinets, and machines. The magnetic material is .020" thick and is flexible enough to stick to gently curved surfaces.
Reflective or Non-Reflective?
Choosing where you need a reflective material or not comes down to the availability of good consistent lighting. For all outdoor applications we would always recommend choosing Engineer Grade Reflective as it provides up to 500 feet of visibility in nighttime conditions. For indoor where lighting is optimal and visual distraction are minimal, then a non-reflective material makes for a good choice.
