What Are Directional Signs?

Updated: Jan 27

A directional sign is a type of signage that is used to indicate the direction that people should go. It can be a permanent or temporary sign that helps to guide people to a particular location. These signs are designed to be easily visible so that they are easy to follow and understand.

Using directional signs can help to keep people safe.


For example, if you are visiting a mall or other large establishment, it is very important to know where to go. Having a clear route to your destination can help reduce congestion and increase your chances of getting where you need to go. This can also lead to better customer service.

The type of directional sign that you choose will depend on the purpose for which you are using the sign. For instance, a sign used in a hospital is used to direct visitors to the areas they need to visit.

Other types of directional signs can be used in restaurants, libraries, and other buildings


These can be made of a variety of materials. Often, these signs use arrows to direct people to the appropriate areas.

Whether you need directional signs for a permanent or temporary installation, there are a few things to consider. First, you should ensure that the material of the sign is weather-resistant. You should also look for a material that can withstand heavy foot traffic. Popular choices include metal, wood, acrylic, and vinyl.

Another important consideration is the size of the directional sign. The size of the sign should be proportional to the size of the area where it is placed. A sign that is too large or too small may make the message difficult to read. This is especially important if there are a lot of people who will be using the sign.

Directional signs can be attractive and extremely helpful for people to find what they need without having to ask for assistance.
