Sidewalk Closed & Road Safety Signs to Avoid Accidents in NYC
Sidewalk closed signs are an important feature of construction sites that encroach on public property. Without such signs, anyone from bikers to dog walkers to parents taking their kids for a walk is put in danger of passing through a construction zone or finding themselves walking along the street. In order to prevent avoidable accidents, buy a customized "Sidewalk Closed" sign from Brooklyn Signs.
Our Sidewalk Signs Comply with the DOB
The New York City Department of Buildings, or the NYC DOB, frequently adjusts its rules and regulations regarding sign usage in areas under construction. By keeping up with these frequent changes, Brooklyn Signs ensures that your construction site complies fully with current codes.
The general purpose of the DOB codes is to keep construction site signs as safe and navigable as possible. Brooklyn Signs provides sidewalk signs for sale to keep the navigation of your site simple for passersby. We provide:
Range of Sizes
Depending on how far away passersby need to be to see the sign, we create signs that range in size anywhere from visible from across the crosswalk to visible from the end of the block.
Sidewalk Sign Graphics
The helpful graphics that can be included on your sidewalk signs may help non-English-speaking pedestrians and pedestrians who cannot read (such as young children) to understand and follow simple directions, such as stopping or walking in a certain direction.
Unique Arrow Arrangements
The arrow or arrows on your sidewalk sign can be arranged in a variety of ways for optimal clarity of meaning within your specific location.
While signs that are too small, too complex or visually unclear can lead to traffic holdups, frustrated, honking drivers and-- in the worst case—tragic accidents, effectively designed signs made by the professionals at Brooklyn Signs keep traffic flowing smoothly and without incident.

Frequently asked questions and resources
What is Your Return Policy?
Your satisfaction is our goal. While we cannot offer returns on most custom products, we will accept any returns when it is our error, and we have created something outside of scope. Any time we have made an error, we will accept a return and discuss the idea of creating a new sign in its place. If you ever receive a broken sign, or you find that a sign isn’t working properly (such as a neon sign), please let us know right away.
What Signs Are Best For Indoors?
All signs last longer when they are inside of your property. Some signs, like neon signs and foam board signs, are almost exclusively meant for indoors. However, metal signs, vinyl signs, aluminum signs, wood signs, and nearly all the signs listed above for outdoor signs also work great as indoor signs depending on your needs.
What Signs Are Best For Outdoors?
There are many different signs that are durable enough for the outdoors. Some of the best materials include wooden signs, aluminum signs, plastic signs, and PVC signs. Banners and vinyl signs can also be great outdoors, but may not be meant to provide you with a permanent sign solution as the weather can cause staining and wrinkles. Many types of lighted signs, such as channel letters and light box signs, are meant for the outdoors.
What Are “Wraps” and How Do They Work?
Wraps are pieces of thin, self-adhesive vinyl. They fit on flat surfaces, such as metal and glass. They can come in black and white or full color, and they pop from whatever surface they are affixed to. We create primarily vehicle wraps and window wraps, branding your property, cars, and trucks and making sure that they provide you with a rolling advertisement that is designed to last.
How Can I Care For My Signs So They Last Longer?
Every sign has its own unique needs. Small metal signs need only be wiped down when it is dusty, and can withstand heavy cleaners. Banners can only be cleaned with gentle soap and water, and can only be rolled up – never folded – or they will have permanent creases and possibly damage the lettering. It is best to ask us after you order your sign, and we’ll gladly give you the information you need to continue to care for your sign.
What Are Sign Rentals?
Creating a custom sign takes time and effort. But not everyone needs a custom sign. Often we’re contacted by those looking for everything from common and unique signs that they can use for a variety of projects – from filming movies to creating a theme at weddings, and more.
