Our product of the week this week is Safety Signs. At Express Sign & Graphics, we work with many of our clients to provide both standard and custom safety and warning signs. We take into consideration the location of the sign (interior/exterior) the visibility distances required, whether or not they need to be night visible (reflective signs), or even glow in the dark.
A DAM GOOD SIGN
A good example of a custom safety sign is a recent sign project we completed for our longtime client Boott Hydropower in Lowell, MA. They required a durable sign that would be placed at one of their dams along the Merrimack River. This is a very busy location with lots of foot traffice, therefore the sign needed to be very visible and in three languages to ensure the safety of passersby. It is also inside the dam so would be taking quite a bit of abuse from water flowing in the dam area. We created a durable 4′ x 8′ sign for them in reflective white and red vinyl in English, Spanish and Cambodian on Diabond which is a very durable sign substrate. This sign replaces the sign that we did for them almost 7 years ago which lasted quite well considering the location.
PORTABLE HAZARD SIGNS
Another example of a client in need of a custom sign is Diagnostic Laboratories of Burlington, MA. Diagnostic needed hangtags for their carriers to identify the contents as a Biohazard. We created a custom graphic for them and had it screenprinted on a plastic tag with a leather strap to be attached to their containers. These worked very well for the client and we’ve been providing them for the customer for years.
KEEPING IT SAFE AT LANTHEUS
At Lantheus in Billerica, MA we created a new set of Speed Limit and directional signs for their facility. Housed in seven buildings, the Lantheus campus is a series of parking areas and roads that travel between the buildings. In addition to cars and delivery trucks there is a lot of pedestrian traffice between the buildings. For Lantheus we use .080 aluminum signs with clearly readable messages directing traffic, indicating stop areas and identifying parking areas. The result is not only attractive, but creates a safe walking and driving environment for their employees.
We work with many of our clients to create custom signs for their warehouses, parking lots, and facilities. Commonly purchased signs include;
Evacuation Meeting Area Signs
Warehouse marking signs
Construction safety signs
Pedestrian traffic signs
and so much more.
We can design custom signs for your specific need, or meet MUTCD and OSHA requirements for traffic, danger and informational of all types. We can make your signs on many different materials including:
.040, .063 or .080 Aluminum
Carved or Sandblasted
PVC and more!
