Fire Alarm Pull Station Signs



Fire alarm signs are used to clearly identify the location of fire alarm pull station signs within a building. The Everlux fire alarm signs follow the design specifications established by NFPA 170 Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols and exceed the luminance requirements of the applicable ASTM standards.

The Everlux catalogue includes a wide selection of fire alarm pull station signs to virtually cover any application needs. From those, we highlight the portrait layout signs that combine the fire alarm graphical symbol with supplementary text available for Type 1 (parallel to the wall), Type 2 (perpendicularly to the wall) and Type P (panoramic) installations. Each of them offering different viewing angles as illustrated in the animation.

Fire Safety Signs for Elevators

In case of fire, most elevators are not to be used in the evacuation process. In these cases, an instruction not to use elevators shall be posted near elevator call buttons. The safety symbols used in such instructions are specified by NFPA 170 – Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols.

There are, however, elevators that are integrated in Elevator Evacuation Systems which are used in the evacuation process. The components of these systems, such as elevator lobbies, elevator doors, shafts and machine rooms are protected from fire and can safely be used for egress. NFPA 101 – Life Safety Code mandates the use of specific signs in the lobbies of elevators that are part of the means of egress indicating tat the elevator can be used for evacuation as all as their operational status.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Signs

All 50 states have Automated External Defibrillator (AED) programs for places of assembly such as airports, stadiums, churches, health clubs, schools and hotels. These must be maintained according to the manufacturer and the American Heart Association (AHA) which address the need of using AED signs to identify where these devices are located.

In case of a cardiac emergency, AED signs provide essential information that will quickly guide people in the direction of the equipment. The design principles of AED signs are established by NFPA 170 – Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols.







These signs are available in several options and will help you to keep your facilities in compliance. To learn more about the Everlux AED signs visit our digital catalogue

Door Opening Hardware Signs
The International Building Code (IBC) requires the use of approved luminous Egress Path Markings in high-rise buildings

Door Opening Hardware Signs

In its CHAPTER 10 – MEANS OF EGRESS, SECTION 1025, LUMINOUS EGRESS PATH MARKINGS, the International Building Code (IBC) requires the use of approved luminous Egress Path Markings in high-rise buildings of Group A, B, E, I, M, and R-1 occupancies in accordance with Sections 1025.1 through 1025.5.

An egress path marking system contains many different components each of them having its specific purpose. The floor and wall perimeter delineation stripes maybe be the most important component to mark the exit path but in emergency situations, door opening hardware signs provide just as essential guidance on where and how to open exit doors.

As per IBC, door hardware shall be marked with a photoluminescent marking with at least 16 square inches. This marking shall be located behind, adjacent to or on the door handle or escutcheon. Panic bars shall be marked with at least 1” wide photoluminescent marking in the complete length of the actuating bar or touchpad.

NFPA 101 Life Safety Code further enforces this requirement in paragraph 7.2.2.5.5.7 Door hardware Marking.





Everlux provides a comprehensive selection of door opening hardware signs and markings as part of its UL 1994 Listed Egress Path Markings range. Learn more in our digital catalogue.
