Wayfinding signs are any type of signage that gives a person directions and helps them find their way around a new area. They help keep foot traffic steady and help people get out of a building safely and efficiently in case of an emergency.
Way-finding and directional signs are essential in buildings or structures where users are required to navigate multiple rooms, hallways, or levels.
Way-finding signage can include nameplates, room numbers, unit directories, washroom signs, elevator signs, parkade signs, no-smoking signs, or any other information people using your facilities may need to know.
