Safety Signs
A symbolic safety sign consists of a geometric shape, a colour and a picture.

An organised system of identifying industrial hazards by easily recognizable safety signs has been developed for South African conditions (for further details see SABS specification No. 1186)
Example of a Prohibitory Sign
  • FIRE FIGHTING INFORMATION (e.g.: hydrant / hose / arrow)
     
  • GENERAL INFORMATION (e.g.: Green - Escape route left)
     
  • PROHIBITORY (e.g.: no smoking / open flame)
     
  • MANDATORY (e.g.: Use refuse bin / Hard hat to be worn)
     
  • WARNING (e.g.: Warning of suspended load)
The following is just a portion of the safety signs available. Symbolic safety signs are available in ABS plastic or in Chromadec and we also offer Photo luminescent symbolic signs (Glow in the dark). 

The sizes available are 150 x 150mm 190 x 190mm, 290 x 290mm or 440 x 440mm modules in single-sided or double-sided.

Please contact us for specific symbolic safety signs or safety messages to obtain a specific quotation.
