Entrance Signs

Overview

Entrance signs can have multiple functions and the positioning of the sign depends on the function and visibility.

 

Positioning

  1. The position of an entrance sign is 1,800 mm from the ground and at least one “M”s distance to the left or right of a door. This also applies to a sign with (single or multiple) lines of text.
  2. When used without a word mark, a building notification sign (with a number/letter) is positioned 400 mm from the wall, edge, and top. The sign can be aligned to the left or right or positioned in the center of the wall. The best position is where the sign is most visible.
  3. When used as a directional sign above a door or leading to a loading dock, the sign is positioned above and in the center of the door and the bottom of the sign is aligned with the top edge of the door.

Appearance

Color combinations and material

  • Five color combinations are available.

Typography

  • Typeface: Verdana regular or bold.
  • The size depends on the content.
  • Min. font size: 85 pt.
