The viewing distances listed in this chart reflect the maximum viewing distance for the sign under favorable viewing conditions.
Favorable viewing conditions are those which allow for a clear, unobstructed view of the message on the sign. Examples of favorable viewing conditions are a bright lighting source over the sign, clear weather conditions, and a clear line of sight with no obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles and no other nearby signs creating distractions.
In unfavorable conditions, the sign is viewable at up to half the favorable distance. Unfavorable viewing conditions are those which make it difficult to read the message of the sign. Examples of this are poor lighting such as a dimly lit room, obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles, poor weather conditions, and other signs posted nearby which create a distraction.
It is the responsibility of the end user to determine the correct size, viewing distance, sign positioning, and sign size for your specific hazard. According to the ANSI Z353.2 sign standard, a ratio of 25 feet of viewing distance per inch of text height, under favorable viewing conditions, should be used to determine the size of your sign. Under unfavorable viewing conditions, such as in low light or for signs with complex messages, the ratio of viewing distance to text height is 12.5 feet to 1 inch.

What do you need to know about Safety Signs:

Environmental & facility safety signs are usually larger because they are observed at further distances. These signs usually contain lesser amounts of information for visual clarity at a distance. Signs should be placed in a clearly visible location and should be protected from damage and obliteration.

  • When safety signs are distinguished by their color code (ANSI Z535.2) they become useful tools to help protect the health and safety of personnel at the workplace.
  • Safety signs are a supplement to, and NOT a substitute for, the required protective measures for eliminating or reducing the hazards in the workplace.
  • Reading and understanding safety signs displayed on machinery or around your facility will help minimize the possibility of accidents and increase hazard awareness.

Safety Sign Functions & Objectives are:

  • The objective of safety signs is to draw attention rapidly and precisely to objects and situations capable of causing specific injuries or accidents.
  • To alert or warn personnel about workplace hazards of which they may not be aware of.
  • To restrict access to areas that present dangerous conditions.
  • To inform people of safety requirements.
  • Provide general information and directions.
  • Remind employees where PPE equipment must be worn.
  • Show where emergency equipment or exits are located.
  • Indicate where certain actions are prohibited.

Safety Sign Recommended Viewing Distances

ANSI Z535-2007 standard uses a ratio of 25 ft of viewing distance per inch of text for Favorable Reading Conditions, and a ratio of 12 ft of viewing distance per inch of text for Unfavorable Reading Conditions.

Determining the safe viewing distance of a sign depends upon many factors: lighting, background, type font and visual acuity. Other factors to consider in determining sign size include: the complexity of the message, the reaction time necessary and the angle the sign will be seen from. In many situations it is better to use multiple smaller signs that are strategically positioned than one large sign.

SafetySign.com prints your 3-Way Fire Extinguisher Sign directly onto the substrate without lamination using UV inks. Your sign will not peel, unlike signs from companies that laminate graphics over the sign material, and are resistant to fading and mild chemicals. This 3-Way Fire Extinguisher Sign is printed using the latest digital printing technologies and processes, which greatly reduces set-up time, allowing for your 3-way sign to print quickly without set-up charges or minimums.

Printing Methods

We choose our printing processes for each product carefully so you receive the best quality product at the lowest price with industry-leading turnaround times. Depending on your size, material, quantity, and other factors, your sign will print using one of our carefully-tested methods.

SafetySign Printing
Cross-Hatch Ink Adhesion Test

SafetySign.com’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.

We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.

Fonts

The text is printed in Arial Black font.

The 3-Way Fire Extinguisher Sign from SafetySign.com uses this font to create a bold message that stands out in order to grab your attention, while also remaining clearly legible at the maximum safe viewing distance of the product.
