A Good Wayfinding System

A good wayfinding system (including directional, informational, identification, and safety and security signage) helps all facility users, both permanent staff and visitors, to save valuable time, while reducing stress and encouraging self-reliance. It also enhances building and personnel safety and security.

Signage for Industrial / Manufacturing Facilities

Signage specified for industrial or manufacturing facilities must give the total facility a cohesive and coordinated appearance while, at the same time, meeting the often very diverse requirements of administrative & production functions. Industrial designer Bill Whiteley has created a range of interior & exterior sign products renowned for their functionality, esthetic simplicity & user-friendly attributes. These products can be used individually or as a base from which to build a complete wayfinding program.

Permanent or Changeable?

Based on its content or purpose, signage may have text that is unlikely to change over time, for example: lobby directories, room numbers and department identification, mandatory safety and security information, floor numbers, washroom facilities, parking & traffic flow information, etc. On the other hand, signs such as workstation signs, office signs including employee names and titles, signs advising of temporary conditions, 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 on site computers and printers. Let us work with you to develop a sign schedule identifying the types and content of signs required for your project.
