door signage

For over 30 years Wm. Whiteley Limited has designed and manufactured a wide spectrum of signs for doors or door signage - from excecutive office doors to doors in your local hospital or healthcare clinic. Wayfinding signs on doors can be directional, informational, or can highlight safety and security issues as well as temporary conditions such as health alerts, special events and meetings. Whatever its content, the underlying purpose of door signage is to help both permanent staff and visitors find their way quickly and easily to the person, service or location they need.

Whether you're large or small...

Whether you occupy a whole building, a floor or floors, or a smaller space, when someone comes to your door you want them to know loudly and clearly who and what you are. You may find yourself facing the challenge of planning a new office or wayfinding system around a set of architectural plans or perhaps you're looking to add to or update an existing system. Whatever your situation - whether you're large or small, expert or novice - Wm. Whiteley Limited have office door signage and a support team with the skills and design-build experience necessary to ensure the success of your project.

Permanent or Changeable?

Based on its content or purpose, office or building signage often includes text that rarely changing over time, i.e., floor numbers, washroom facilities, meeting room signs, etc. On the other hand, signs such as workstation signs, office signs including employee names and titles, etc., may require more frequent updating. Wm. Whiteley Limited designs and manufactures signs and sign systems which can accommodate the need for both permanent as well as changeable text. Our changeable signs are designed to hold paper inserts which can be updated virtually instantaneously using your own office computers and printers.
