The multiple uses of hanging signs and wayfinding signage

by Brian Miller Article writer
Wayfinding signage and hanging signs can be used by a wide range of companies and institutions because they are cost effective and simple and serve their purpose in a great way: they save people time to get from point A to B without too much trouble. Although they are used indoors with an informational purpose (to help people find their way around), they can also be used for marketing by creative business entrepreneurs with a vision.

People are most familiar with hanging signs from shopping aisles. They know that if they raise their heads they can find out where the products they need are placed. Shops purchase and make use of these hanging signs because they are affordable, durable and they make a difference in client’s purchasing experiences, making things easy to find in shopping malls. And most supermarkets use them because they are very useful; the staff doesn’t get bombarded with questions from every client that enters their store. Most people find their way by looking at the hanging signs around, even when making use of the bathroom facilities.

Because of the elegant look, cable systems or rod systems can be successfully used in large business buildings, such as corporate centres, banks, event centres, hotels and sporting venues. They can be used to direct the staff and customers through the buildings helping them to avoid that feeling of being trapped in a maze, especially when the available space is partitioned and allocated in confusing ways. Wayfinding signage is extremely popular because it does not take up space which can serve other purposes. Other types of signs can knocked off when placed at crossways and in hallways designed for public access. If the buildings are crowded, hanging signs are a necessity because they allow people to move unhindered. That is why they are of excellent use in universities and schools where a large number of students find their way to classes and lectures, every day. Wayfinding signage is also great for train stations and bus stations, to signal the platforms, the ticket office, facilities and routes.

Hanging signs are sometimes used for advertising as well. It is an unconventional method and one needs to make sure they use the appropriate signs to withstand outdoor usage. Signs which are used outside will probably need maintenance too, so they will be more costly. For indoor use however, the same hanging signs which were mentioned earlier can be used in a similar fashion, but with a different purpose. Marketing plays an important role for the growth of any businesses. As a matter of fact, there is no business that can grow without marketing. Based on this, original means to promote a business have a bigger impact. Placing indoor wayfinding signage towards your own business venue can help increase your clientele. It can be appreciated by people with a poor sense of orientation or bad vision and can also make a stand with people who love retro ads. Hanging signs with a unique design can be great means of attracting a particular segment of clients because: more people can see where your shop or business venue is situated, because you can use subliminal messaging to suggest how appealing your business is over other’s and can stand apart from others in crowd.

No matter what the use of indoor hanging sings is, one thing is certain: the method of signalling a route or place is not new. It has been around for ages. This means it is a great way to communicate to your clients, to help them find their way to where they want to get or where you want them to be. Despite being a very traditional method to pin point things, the way it is done nowadays is very sturdy and stylish.
