Overview

Pylons serve multiple purposes. They can function as site markers, entrance signs, or directional signs (or a combination of these).

Positioning

There are two rules for the positioning of pylons:

  • Pylons that are positioned perpendicular to the road (most likely to be double-sided pylons), are placed in a way that the curve is on the side that faces the road.
  • Pylons positioned parallel to the road (most likely to be single-sided pylons), are placed with the curve on the right-hand side of the pylon when looking at it from the sidewalk.

Appearance

  • Pylons are available in four color combinations depending on the model.
  • Pylons are made of aluminum panels and profiles which are connected to an internal galvanized steel frame and base plate.
  • A cell-shaped header panel is fret-cut out of the aluminum panel, through which an acrylic panel is pushed. This panel is spray-painted with the corporate color rich purple. Illumination behind the panel creates an illuminated outline of the cell shape.
  • The base plate and construction of the pylons are designed in such a way that existing foundations can be reused.

Dimensions

The pylon signs are available in two sizes with heights of 5,000 or 3,000 mm, both available as single-sided and double-sided versions. Pylons should be chosen depending upon the position, function, and classification of the facility, etc.

Only the three-meter pylon can display directional or destination information instead of the Vibrant M. This content is applied by means of self-adhesive vinyl (and is not illuminated). The typeface used should be Verdana regular or Verdana bold. The font size depends on the content. However, the minimum size should be 85 pt, with automatic leading.
