Sizing and Signage: How to Select LED Signs for your Facility
Updated: Aug 30, 2021
Safety signs are found in almost every area in office buildings and large facilities. Why are these signs important? They are informational and can also protect you, your staff, and visitors from hazards. For instance, our LED signs can be connected to an X-Ray machine. When the X-Ray machine is in use, the sign will light up in red and read "Danger X-Ray On". Therefore, this will inform personnel that the X-Ray is in use and they should take precautions. There are many uses for LED signs. I will discuss a few ways to select LED warning signs below.
Recently, we had a customer who had a need for a sign. They required a message to have both an English and Japanese message on the same sign so all of their workers could read it. We were up for the challenge and it was a great success! Now, all employees will be aware of when access is allowed and when a mission is in progress. This sign is an Ultra 790 three-state sign. It has two messages, one in green, and one in red
Messages are in both English and Japanese
The Ultra sign comes in three sizes:
The Ultra 470 is 18.5" (w) x 7" (h) x 1" (d)
The Ultra 790 is 31.1" (w) x 7" (h) x 1" (d)
The Ultra 580 is 22.8" (w) 7" (h) x 1" (d) - The 580 is Waterproof!
Our Mini signs are a great option for just about anywhere. For example, Holland America line uses this LED sign for Engine Control Room and Bridge entrances. They used the three state sign with ECR and Bridge Open/Closed messages. Another interesting application is confessionals! The sign is placed outside of the confessional and alerts parishioners if it is occupied. The uses are limitless - bathrooms, laboratories, industrial applications, medical facilities, etc. The dimensions for the sign are 6.3" (w) x 4.3" (h) x 1.5" (d)
Need a sign that is EASY to install? It doesn't get much easier than the Slim Jim LED sign. This sign is hard-wired - so you can hook it up to a 110 V light switch and you're done! Several of our Slim Jim customers are recording studios, police stations, meeting rooms in professional buildings, hotels, universities, etc. The dimension of the Slim Jim are: 14" (w) x 4" (h) x 0.4" (d)
