Safety & Instructional Signage is fully customized to display the entire floor plan of the rail car. This signage is tended to be mounted throughout the passenger rail car to help passengers and crew members find the closest exit in case of emergency. All emergency door exits, emergency window exits and “You Are Here” indicators can be displayed with clear evacuation instructions to help ensure safe and orderly egress from the car.
Visual Marking Systems’ fully-customized BraillePrint® products feature clear or colored braille and tactile features over full color text, graphics, and illustrations. With VMS’ advanced printing technologies, we can help you display important information for both your seeing and visually-impaired passengers with ADA braille signs.
According to the United States Department of Labor, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodation, communications, and governmental activities. The Department of Transportation requires transit operators to make their systems accessible to persons with disabilities. So, where should you begin?
Visual Marking Systems was the first certified manufacturer of High Performance Photoluminescent (HPPL) graphics in the United States and passed outside testing as part of the certification process. All of our safety signs and symbols ship with proof of certification to be in compliance with American Public Transit Association (APTA) standards.
HPPL signage is an important standard throughout APTA because it directly aids in the safety of passengers and crew. Our specially formulated HPPL is fully charged after only one hour of exposure to natural or artificial light and glows for hours in total darkness ensuring that all passengers and crew members are able to locate the nearest exit in the event of a power failure.
Bus stop signage and transportation signs are vital to your transportation authority and your riders. Effective signage should provide travelers with accurate information that is both high impact and easy-to-read. The ease or distress of finding a bus stop sign that is in good condition and contains accurate information can have a major impact on a passenger’s overall experience with the transportation authority during their commute.
Effective wayfinding signage helps create an atmosphere in which passengers feel comfortable and secure, but also plays an important role in branding and inspiring confidence in your transportation system. Wayfinding helps inform people of their surroundings in an unfamiliar environment, and should consist of clear, comprehensive visual communications with concise messaging. The ability to easily navigate through your station can have a major impact on your riders’ overall experience.
