Management companies overseeing medical office buildings as well as other commercial settings favor engraved tenant signs in Little Rock AR. Because there is occasional turnover, these professionals need signage products that support a building’s overall atmosphere but can also be switched out quickly. What do you need to know about these products today?
Engraved Signage Fits in with a Building’s Ambiance
Choose metal, acrylic, or even high-density urethane (HDU) as the raw material for your signage. The color play of your chosen palette and the overall manufacturing technique you favor set the tone for the atmosphere of the building or office. Because engraving techniques may include color fills, ornate scripts, or primarily functional presentations, you succeed in staying true to your vision for the location – even as you provide signage that identifies a variety of tenants.
How to Incorporate Engraved Tenant Signs for Informative and Functional Displays
You have a number of options open when considering the addition of engraved markers at your location.
- Sliders. Door sliders are a favorite display choice for engraved blade signs. They fit into the frames you have already pre-installed on the tenants’ doors. When a tenant leaves, just slide out the blade, turn it around, and display a message that reads “Available.” In so doing, you generate interest in the vacant suite.
- Directories. Many building directories now also feature this sliding technology. Although the blades are significantly smaller, they still look great when engraved and filled with color. Consider allowing tenants to use their corporate colors for the fill tone. A different type of directory uses airplane cables to feature blades that display companies’ names and locations. Add engraved arrows to make the directions clear for visitors to your site.
- Suite signs. Mark the suites of incoming businesses with the companies’ names and a display of the logo. Engraving this setup ensures that the suites on the same floor feature a similar appearance even though logos are different. To meet the standards of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), we recommend using these larger signs with frames that show the suite number with raised numerals, Braille II dots, and the proper color contrast.
- Room labels. In areas that are off limits to the public, tenants may choose to mark rooms and locations with engraved signs. You frequently see this in medical offices where labs and storage areas note what staff members will find inside these locales.
By the way, did you know that you could take the appeal of engraved tenant signs in Little Rock AR, beyond merely the functional displays? Some business clients have asked us to create artistic renditions of their corporate names and logos that we engraved in acrylic and filled with color. Mounted to another acrylic board that displays a mounted print of the setting, this look quickly takes on the quality of a sophisticated lobby sign.
