When it’s time to replace yet another failed electric-battery exit sign in your premises, how do you find the right size of LED exit sign when ordering?

The size of most exit signs is written on their front, with the most common being 24M.

The size is the maximum viewing distance, so a 24M sign is visible at up to 24 metres. Other common sizes you may encounter include 16M and 32M signs, viewable at up to 16 metres and 32 metres respectively.

When ordering a replacement sign you should order the same size sign, as long as nothing with the design of your building has altered its floor plan. If that’s the case, a larger size sign may be required, or it’s position may need to be changed, you should obtain professional advice.

Your licensed electrician should install the sign and update the Essential Service Records for the building if it is required by legislation in your State or Territory.
