Wayfinding Directional Signage
Wayfinding directional signage and wayfinding aids are common in large public buildings such as hospitals, malls, and airports. This type of signage is used to make spaces universally accessible and improve directions for visitors. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has greatly expanded the scope of wayfinding signage required in the U.S. Directional signage is commonly aided by digital kiosks, maps, and building directories and organized by color coding and signage clustering to help translate areas of industry-specific terms.
A great number of plastics are involved in the production of wayfinding signage. Acrylic, polycarbonate, aluminum composites, expanded PVC, and foam sheet are just a few common substrates used. Plastics offer unrivaled options in color, texture, and finishes compared to other materials giving designers a wide palette of options when creating these signs. LED solutions are also available to illuminate transparent materials. Piedmont Plastics stocks a wide variety of products used in wayfinding and directional signage.
