Interior Signs

Businesses everywhere in the US use interior signs and the variety of signs used by such entities include those that are used to show directions, those that mark rooms and those that instruct or inform. As with everything in this world, some of these are more prevalent than others. You will notice that some signs are more commonly found in majority of these places than others.

The main reason why specific signs are used more than others is because these are usually utilized for facilities or rooms that are also found in every establishment. These signs are also easier to recognize due to their commonality and frequent usage. In order for you to understand what we are getting at, here are a number of signs that are more often than not, used more than other interior signs that you might know of.

Commonly Used and Seen Interior Signs

There are a number of indoor signs that you can readily see in a number of different establishments everywhere. Some of these are even used numerous times in any building, making them very common as well as easy to recognize the moment one sees them. Here are some of these interior signs:

Bathroom SignBathroom Signs – probably the most commonly used and seen of all interior signs, bathroom signs are used to indicate where bathrooms can be found. These signs can be found hanging in hallways, corridors or walls, with a few being paired with arrows to show exactly in which direction these rooms can be found. Bathroom signs often carry the usual male or female pictogram, which indicates that a bathroom is for male or female use. At times, you will find that these signs will carry both the male and the female figure on it. This indicates that the bathroom the sign is being used on is a unisex one, or a bathroom that both genders can use.

Room Number SignRoom Number Signs – these are signs that are often used in many different establishments, and these include hotels, schools, offices and hospitals. These are often seen mounted on the door of the room itself, and as per ADA rules, on the side of the door where the latch is. These are usually made with some of the prerequisite features that most ADA signs have, like tactile characters and Braille translations. These also need to have the 70% color contrast that these types of signs need, as well as the non-glare and non-gloss finish that all ADA signage come with.
