Our standard size sign is 5½" x 6" and is made of anodized aluminum. The lettering is made by a unique process that makes the lettering actually part of the aluminum. The lettering is not printed or painted on the sign so it can not wear off. The sign is clear anodized, making it long lasting and virtually maintenance free. These signs can be mounted by either adhesive backing or screws. For areas where vandalism or theft is a concern, we offer vandal resistant screws for mounting.
The price of each 5½" x 6" sign is $19.50 (black background with natural aluminum letters) or $27.50 (natural aluminum background with black letters) and includes your choice of adhesive backing or four drilled mounting holes. Add $2.50 per sign for vandal resistant screws and plastic anchors.
Grade 2 braille translations can be added to these signs for an additional cost of $3.00 per sign.
Custom sizes and design layouts, such as the inclusion of maps, can be made up to 11" x 17". A special quote is required for these signs.
To view the specifications for these signs please refer to the Life Safety Stairwell Sign Specification sheet.
