Frequently asked questions.

What is the primary purpose of exterior wayfinding signage?

Imagine a visitor arriving at your business or public space. Exterior wayfinding signage acts as a silent guide, ensuring they can effortlessly navigate the area and reach their destination with minimal confusion. In essence, it streamlines the flow of people, enhancing the overall user experience.

What materials are suitable for wayfinding signs, considering durability and visibility?

Durable materials like aluminium, acrylic, and polycarbonate are common choices, with options for indoor and outdoor environments.

Are there any legal requirements or regulations to consider when installing wayfinding signs?

Yes, local building codes or accessibility regulations might apply. Consulting with your local council is necessary to ensure compliance.

What are some key considerations for designing effective exterior wayfinding signage?

Clarity and consistency are paramount. Signage should be easy to read with a clear visual hierarchy, utilising universal symbols where appropriate. A consistent design approach across all signs ensures a cohesive user experience. Placement is also crucial – signs need to be strategically positioned to be readily visible at decision points within the exterior environment.

How can exterior wayfinding signs be designed for accessibility?

Inclusive design ensures everyone can navigate the space easily. Consider incorporating tactile elements and Braille for visually impaired individuals. Use clear, concise language that’s easy to understand, and consider signage height and placement for optimal visibility for those with mobility limitations.

What are some of the common types of exterior wayfinding signs?

A wide range of options exist. Directories provide an overview of the entire space, while door signs identify specific building entrances. Finger posts offer directional guidance, and floor graphics can be used for wayfinding on walkways. Modular systems allow for flexibility, and plaques or suspended signage provide additional information display options.

How can exterior wayfinding signage be maintained?

Routine cleaning with mild soap and water is usually sufficient. Depending on the material, contact us for cleaning recommendations to ensure optimal lifespan and maintain a clean appearance.

How can wayfinding signs contribute to sustainability efforts?

Choose energy-efficient lighting options for illuminated signs, use recycled materials, and ensure responsible disposal of old signage when updating your system.
