What are IMO signs?
IMO signs are internationally standardized safety signs for the marine industry approved by the International Maritime Organization. IMO signs are therefore safety signs for the shipping industry, boats ships and ferries of different kinds.
Our IMO signs are available in different materials such as the economical PVC, innovative PETX and high quality aluminum. Regardless of the base material, you will always receive a detailed and high-quality result for the desired symbols. We only use environmentally friendly pigments that have been thoroughly tested to ensure their durable and good quality. The standard equipment Safe Sign signs come with double-sided tape to make installation as easy as possible.
Our range of escape-, fire- and rescue- signage includes all the signage products you need to ensure a safe environment in your building, on your vessel or any other fitting environment. Clearly marked fire extinguishers, fire alarms and rescue equipment are important when emergencies occur. Clear identification is also crucial from the point of view of accident prevention. As a result of people being able to observe the warnings during normal working and visiting situations, they make mental notes of the locations and the equipment. In a situation where an emergency arises, they will as result of this be capable of acting immediately, even in a stressful situation, because they are able to find the extinguishers, alarms and rescue equipment rapidly.
Why SafeSign is the best alternative
Our range of SafeSign IMO signs are high-quality signs made of PETX material, PVC or aluminium. The PETX signs are halogen-free and completely recyclable. Thanks to the innovative material and printing technology, the signs are also very durable. The print pattern is placed on the back of the IMO sign, whereby the protective plastic layer preserves the information in the sign clearly better than the traditional printing method. PETX is also non-toxic and fire-resistant.

IMO signs according to the standards
IMO signs are particularly suitable for the maritime industry. According to the requirements of IMO RESOLUTION A.1116 (30), the signs must be manufactured in accordance with ISO 7010 & ISO 24409-2 standards.
IMO resolution A.752(18)
IMO Resolution A.752(18) prescribes that all photoluminescent signage installed on a vessel needs to meet several requirements. With reference to the luminescence the requirements is that the installed signs need to provide 15 MCD / m2 after 10 minutes, and 2 MCD / m2 after 60 minutes as a minimum, when they are no longer exposed to a source of illumination. The luminance of LLL (Low Location Light) systems needs to be tested at least every five years.
IMO resolution A.1116(30)
The IMO agreed to accept the safety symbols ISO 7010 and 24409-2, as a result of which all exit markings, equipment position markings and other safety markings on board must be produced in accordance with the ISO safety markings. This means that the same identifiable safety signs are used both at sea and on land, which increases recognizability and safety.
