HPD buildings are properties that must adhere to the rules and regulations of New York City’s Department of Housing and Preservation Development (HPD). Part of the HPD’s requirements for commercial and residential buildings is the posting of certain types of signs to inform people about the building.

What Are Boiler Room Signs?

Boiler room signs are required by HPD regulations to keep building occupants safe. They provide short and specific pieces of information to employees, inspectors, and visitors about:

The boiler is an important part of the building it’s in, producing heat to make it more comfortable to inhabitants, visitors, employees, and anyone else in a building.

What Features Do Boiler Room Signs Have?

The design and shape of these types of signs are usually not too varied, in the interest of sticking to a template that’s most easily read and understood. Boiler room signs typically have about five short lines of text maximum on a monochromatic background with few, if any, graphics. The dimensions these signs usually have are:

They use a minimum range of color as well, with attention-getting combinations that are most widely recognized as part of informative emergency signs: red, black, white, and silver. White text on a black or red background and red text on a white background are the most commonly used color combinations. We offer matte or glossy finish to match other HPD signage and your business’s overall aesthetic.

Since they’re most often displayed on doors, we don’t usually drill holes in them or provide screws and other hardware to attach them to display surfaces like walls. We can apply tape on the back of them for easy installation.
