Escape route signs and pictograms
Since 2016, SafeExIT and Induflex have worked closely together on the production of plastic parts and pictograms for evacuation route signs.
SafeExIT came to us with their drawings and product specifications.
The task included cutting parts for signs in a suitable material, printing appropriate colours and streamlining production of the many different signage solutions.
Individually tailored signs showing meter distances
One of the aims of each sign is to indicate the distance to the nearest escape route or emergency aid station. This meant that each individual sign had to be adapted to impart the information specific to its location.
To ensure the correct specifications, we developed software specially for printing SafeExIT’s signs. It reads and prints out the meterage in question.
Production of signs
Since the signs must be able to withstand fire, we make them in a special fire-retardant polycarbonate so that the product fulfils UL94 requirements.
We use our plotting cutter and digitally print pictograms: these show possible evacuation routes and how to find emergency assistance.
We use EPDM cellular rubber to seal the electronic part of the sign to keep out any damp and dirt. EPDM cellular rubber can withstand extreme conditions and, in particular, is able to withstand high winds and all weathers.
We then fit the sheets into frames. On arrival at SafeExIT, the signs are finished and sent onward for use in road, metro and train tunnels all over the world.
