AS 3745:2010 Compliant Evacuation Diagrams
Clear, Informative & Compliant

Do I need Evacuation Diagrams?

In accordance with AS3745:2010, it is mandatory to replace evacuation diagrams every five years. Buildings larger than 300sqm must display these diagrams to guide occupants to the safest exits and designated assembly points in the event of an emergency. Additionally, the diagrams will indicate the location of fire equipment for use in a safe manner.

What is required for Evacuation Diagrams?

AS 3745-2010 outlines the requirements for evacuation diagrams, including:

  • A pictorial representation of the floor or area


  • Designated exits

  • Warden intercommunication points (WIPs) and manual call points (MCPs) and emergency call points (ECPs)

  • Main controls/panels for occupant warning equipment

  • Hose reels

  • Extinguishers

  • Fire blankets

  • Fire indicator panel (FIP), if provided

  • Refuges, if present

  • Validity date

  •  Location of assembly area(s), either stated in words or pictorially represented

  •  A legend reflecting the symbols used

At Essential Fire Services, our evacuation diagrams comply with these requirements and may also include optional elements as listed in AS 3745-2010.

Our Complete Service

Audit & Markup

Our skilled safety officer will conduct a comprehensive site audit at your location. This will involve mapping out the site layout and marking the position of all crucial safety equipment. Our safety expert will also identify any potential hazards and suggest necessary improvements before finalizing the diagrams.


Our designer, in collaboration with a safety officer, will craft your evacuation plan using the findings of the site audit. The plan will highlight the most efficient route of exit, placement of emergency equipment, and designated assembly area for your site.

Review & Installation

After our safety officer has thoroughly reviewed the evacuation diagrams, we will engage with you to make any necessary modifications. Upon approval, the diagrams will be installed in snap frames on-site. The use of snap frames allows for convenient updating of the diagrams in case of any future changes to the building layout.
