Access signs as the starting point of a safety signage system
They are often unmissable when entering a location or site: access signs. Equipped with instructions, safety symbols, signage and corporate identity features. The access sign provides the general framework for the applicable safety rules and warnings and is the starting point of a consistent safety information system and therefore the starting point of communication to the visitor.
The entrance sign as the starting point of a system
The access sign is an essential part of safety signage, where thoughtful use of the number of safety symbols, references, use of colour and logos and typeface is necessary to achieve good information transfer. In addition to design, reading distance and the resulting ratio and size of symbols and text is a determining factor. When access signs are designed and realised from a starting point of philosophy, further signage at the location/site can easily be expanded. Standards such as ISO/TS 20559 (Guideline for the design and use of a safety signage system) and ISO 28564 (Public information systems) are valuable aids to planning. Especially for a recognizable and harmonised access sign and signage system.
The access sign is also the part of the safety signage system that your company’s marketing or communications department will want to think about. Safety rules are displayed on it, but in order to promote the connection with the site, the visual identity (corporate identity) of the company must be integrated into the design. A nice challenge for us to design from the mix of branding guidelines, ISO standards and applicable safety rules an access sign that gets the right attention, at every visit.
Access signs and site signage
The connection between the access sign, safety zone signs and signage requires good planning, in order to build it all as a coherent system. A tight connection (of access signs) with site signage contributes to a more targeted and controlled number of traffic movements. In other words, the more clearly the information is coordinated, the fewer people will lose their way or perform dangerous actions at your location/site.
We offer a comprehensive range of services, options and designs for access signs. The joint planning, design and realisation of an access sign, possibly extended with other signage and safety information boards, is a journey that we carry out together every day with pleasure and dedication.
