Refuge Area Accessible Signs

The following examples of Refuge Area and Refuge Point accessible signage are suitable for use in a fire protected compartment used as a refuge area and approved under a building / fire engineered solution.

The accessible refuge area signs adopt the Accessible Means of Egress Icon as part of an overall accessible exit signage strategy.

Any Refuge Area must be sufficiently sized within a fire compartment or fire escape stairs for a person to wait until they are assisted with their evacuation using an evacuation chair. You can read more about this idea in the evacuation guide by Lee Wilson.
