Signage - what you should know


Good signage promotes safety. Signage is a simple form of communication. By means of information signs, warning signs, prohibition signs or safety signs.


No matter the type of signage, it is important that the message on the sign is easy to understand so it can be decoded in seconds. This is why pictograms, meaning simple symbols, are often used on signage.

Our signage is made from solid materials to withstand even the harshest winter, rain or heat wave.
