Sizing and Signage: How to Select LED Signs for Your Facility
3 July 2019
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 precaution. 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 custom sign. They needed a message in English and in Japanese 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 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
The Ultra sign comes in three sizes:
a) The Ultra 470 is 5″ (w) x 7″ (h) x 1″ (d).
b) The Ultra 790 is 31.1″ (w) x 7″ (h) x 1″ (d)
c) The Ultra 580 is waterproof! The dimensions for this sign are: 8″ (w) x 7″ (h) x 1″ (d)
Mini LED Signs
- Our Mini LED 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 on the outside of the confessional and alerts parishioners if it is occupied. The uses are limitless – bathrooms, laboratories, industrial applications, medical facilities etc.
The dimensions of the Mini LED sign are: 6.3″ (w) x 4.3″ (h) x 1.5″ (d)
