Every facilities management professional knows that the smooth operation of schools and universities requires much more than many may realize. Among the many things you must consider, perhaps one thing is particularly memorable: communication is critical.
Facility signs empower you to maximize safety and efficiency by optimizing communication at every space within your institution. In an environment that’s inundated with demands for their attention, how do you clearly communicate hazards and navigational aids for students, staff, and visitors?
Fortunately, at Shiffler Equipment, we offer an expansive catalog of diverse signage for your facility, school, or other educational institution. With everything from health, janitorial, and safety signage to stencils, paint, and parts, we have exactly what you need to grab attention and communicate clearly. We even offer our own proprietary bracket for attaching signs to chain link fence.
Custom facility signage can be personalized with original messaging that aids visitors in navigating your institution and avoiding hazards. There are as many ways to communicate with your staff and visitors as there are types of signage.
