If you need signs for your vessel, building, or warehouse, it’s important to know sign regulations. But when it comes to size, there are no specific rules. So, how do you know what size you need for your signs? What is the recommended Sign size? We can help you with that.
The size of a sign is very important because your employees or visitors need to be able to see them at all times. Especially when it comes to Safety Signs. In case of an emergency, the text on the signs has to be legible and easy to read. Therefore it is important to always make sure your signs have good lighting.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) provides standard pictograms that have officially been made part of the ISO 7010 standard. In ISO 7010, you will find all standards for Safety Signs regarding shape, color, and more. However, ISO does not give you any guidelines about the recommended size of your signs. But luckily for you, we do.
It won’t come as a surprise to you that signs that have a far viewing distance, need to be bigger. But how much bigger? Viewing distance depends on the viewing conditions on the location and the text size of the sign. But how do you determine a viewing distance? At SafeSign, we have a lot of experience in placing signs over the years. We created a guideline for recommended Sign sizes to help you make your location safer and implement our signs in the best way possible.
As you can see, the Recommended Sign Size for 6 different viewing distances is displayed. If you need any additional information about our recommendations, we are always happy to advise you.
All of our Safety Signs are made of 100% environmentally friendly photoluminescent material. The signs are free of toxic or radioactive additives and have the best afterglow properties on the market. By using modified PET material, our signs are fully recyclable.
The costs of the signs themselves are only a small part of the total cost of your signage. With an expected lifespan of 10 to 15 years, SafeSign has the most economical signs.
