What are Emergency Evacuation Diagrams

Basically, Evacuation Diagrams are way finding maps used to direct any person in a building or area away from danger to a safe place. These diagrams must be designed in accordance with strict guidelines and regulations set-down within the AS3745:2010 and they must include a number of minimum elements such as fire extinguishers, fire hydrants and other important information.

Where Should Evacuation Diagrams Be Installed and How?

It is crucial that the orientation, position and location of diagrams are compliant with the standard as well as the materials and installation of each sign so as not to compromise safety; for example, simply drilling a hole into a fire door to install an evacuation sign can dramatically reduce its performance capability. Altering a fire door may render the door non-compliant and the door will need to be repaired or more likely replaced. Safety Graphics provides professional, fully compliant and well-designed evacuation diagrams for display in common areas of buildings and sites.
