Types of Wayfinding Signage
Wayfinding signage is a class of signage defined by its’ ability to provide directions to visitors. Did you know there are four types of wayfinding signs?
- Identification – Identification Wayfinding Signage provides an instant snapshot of exactly where a person is within a building. Examples are name plaques and bathroom markers.
- Directional – Directional signs help people find their way through a building. Examples include signs indicating which direction to go at intersections, guides on where to find a particular person or indicators on the floor to show which way to follow to get to a particular place.
- Informational – Informational signs are found in large areas and answer questions before they can be asked. Examples include maps that easily identify bathrooms, elevators and departments.
- Regulatory – Regulatory signs give important information that visitors must follow. Examples include no smoking, employee only and wheelchair accessibility signage.
