Examples of Our Fire Safety Signs

What Are Egress Signs?

There are several fire safety signs that are required by federal law. The most common - and the one that often requires a special company to create - is the egress map, along with in-case-of fire signs, smoke signs, emergency exit signs, and "You Are Here" signs (which may be a part of the egress map. These signs may be crafted out of several materials:

  • Acrylic
  • Metal
  • Plastic Engraved

Although these signs need to be clearly labeled and easy to read (to be consistent with local and federal law), customization is possible. Acrylic, metal, and plastic are easily customizable, so we can create these signs in essentially any Pantone color, size, or finish. This makes it possible for us to match the look of other signage, or create a map that is useful as a part of the building’s décor.

Creating these signs may require the input of an architect, to help make the building information as accurate as possible. You may be able to use the original floorplan of your building available from the DOB, or you may be able to contact an engineer to create a model of each floor.

Because we’re a full-service sign company, we can also create some of the additional FDNY fire evacuation signs and NYC fire safety signs that your building needs to protect those inside and also comply with local laws, like emergency exit signs and other directional signage.

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.
