Direct Your Audience By Placing Correct Floor Numbers

One of the most easily forgotten types of HPD signs are floor number signs. Since they’re not as directly related to safety – for example, like emergency exit signs – it can be easy to not notice them or to forget that they play an important role on the property. However, these signs are essential for staying oriented and finding your way in a building, particularly larger buildings, and are required for HPD properties. Signs NYC creates some of the best made HPD signs in the New York and New Jersey areas.

What Are Floor Number Signs?

Floor number signs are directional signs that help people inside a building get where they’re trying to go. Since most building’s interiors don’t look drastically different from one section to another, these signs can often be the primary way of figuring out where you are and where you need to be. They’re most notable in residential properties – like apartment complexes and hotels – as well as large public buildings like hospitals where people need to get to their destination quickly and efficiently. No matter how large or complex a property is, good floor number signs can help a person entirely unfamiliar with that property easily figure out the route to their destination.
