We offer directory signage for helping visitors find their way to departments, washrooms, elevators and floors.

What does 'Directory Signage' include?

Directory Signage is a broad term which may be used to describe signage displaying directional, informational, or identification details. Directory signage may also include signs designed to highlight safety and security issues as well as temporary conditions such as health alerts, special events and meetings. Whatever its content, the fundamental purpose of Directory 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, the office signage you choose communicates loudly and clearly about who and what you are.

Permanent or Changeable

Based on its content or purpose, directory 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 and traffic flow information, etc. On the other hand, signs such as workstation signs, nurse station 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 and 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.
