As operators of manufacturing plants know, there is a distinct need for targeted directional and wayfinding signage that applies to the site. Unlike office buildings or retail environments, wayfinding and directional signs for manufacturing plants in Fort Worth must be eye-catching, impacting and proscribe defined actions. If you are one of the plant operators in the area and tasked with the purchase of appropriate signage, a catalog of options makes this task easier.
Exterior Building Signs
When your plant uses multiple properties, label each building with a lightbox cabinet. This signage product offers you the opportunity to not just name the building but also provide additional information with respect to allowed access by personnel and (or) visitors. This type of wayfinding product lets all those doing business with and at your plant take quick note of the buildings that are of interest to them.
Mounted to the exterior of the building, these signage products provide directions to visitors and employees. Limit the access to certain areas, require hardhats and remind workers to use the footwear set forth by OSHA and the employee handbook. Safety signs are usually made of aluminum and coated with a digitally imprinted vinyl overlay to display the message.
Floor Graphics for Wayfinding and Directions
Regulate the speed in the parking lot and the temporary parking areas around the loading dock. Make your shipping and receiving area safer by outlining where trucks should pull up and in which direction they should exit. In addition, place warning markers onto the floor to alert workers to safe distances to keep from the vehicles as they move.
Public and Employee Safety Signage
EVAC maps allow for the speedy evacuation of your plant in case of an emergency. Posting information about your fire escape route is another necessity. Lit exit signs help everyone in the building to quickly locate the nearest exit when an EVAC map is not nearby. In a sprawling space, these clearly marked exits are of vital importance.
Parking Lot Options
Post and panel markers are ideal directional and wayfinding signs for manufacturing plants in Fort Worth. They allow for the display of destination names with arrows pointing in the right direction. Place them near the entrances to the parking lot as well as to the plant itself. Make it clear for first-time visitors where they should park when visiting the business office or when touring the plant.
Putting Together Your Signage Package
The professionals at Cowtown Graphics & Signs understand that it is a tall order to think of every marker that you need on your plant’s property. Our experts routinely work with plant managers who are thinking about adding wayfinding, safety and directional signage products. We discuss with you the most commonly commissioned markers and visit your location for a site survey. This process allows us to provide you with an inventory of the markers you already have as well as those that you are still missing.
Next, we can discuss the use of materials and signage display options. In many cases, plant operators like to include their branding messages on the signs. If you already have artwork on file, we can use it to brand while we imprint your message. If needed, we gladly create your markers’ design from scratch.
