Sign Holders … Helping you manage your facility
Sign holders are frequently specified as part of an initial construction or renovation project but at other times, it's the sight of temporary notices taped to doors or in elevator lobbies or seeing visitors stopping staff to ask directions that signals a need. Regulations can also change over time - including updates to health & safety or security measures - resulting in the need to post new information. Whatever the reason, using sign holders to ensure that signage meets the needs of users, be they permanent staff, residents or visitors, is an effective way to quickly & economically improve the appearance & efficiency of your facility.
What to consider in specifying Sign Holders
Permanent or changeable text?
Depending on the purpose of the sign, the text or message may be relatively permanent over time, for example, floor numbers, washroom facilities, meeting room signs, etc. On the other hand, signs such as workstation signs, office signs including employee names & titles, etc., will probably need to be updated much more frequently. Wm. Whiteley Limited has long been a pioneer in the design and manufacture of sign holders that allow content or messages to be updated easily & inexpensively using standard office equipment. This attribute - the ability to keep content current - is the most important criteria in keeping signage functional over time.
Access to Sign Inserts
Some sign inserts need to be changed often & others very rarely; some applications, such as public safety, require a high level of control & security while other sign holders may need to be easily opened by anyone. Our sign holders offer various levels of access to inserts, tamper-resistance & changeability. Depending on the sign holder selected, signs can be installed either permanently or on a temporary basis to assist in managing emergency or short-term situations such as seasonal health alerts. Our wayfinding planning team is available to help in selecting the sign types appropriate for any size of project.
