Permanent Directional Signs For Sale
Road Directional Signs For Sale
Directional signs are almost always custom as they will include place names, diagrams for roundabouts and road numbers. Without direction signs, anyone driving without a sat nav would be lost.
Road directional signs come in a few different formats to suit different applications.
- Shaped direction signs - These signs have one end with an arrow shape, indicating the proper direction to travel to the mentioned destination.
- Rectangular Signs - These often include the directions to multiple sites or even specific roads, for example, the nearest motorway.
- Diagram Based Direction Signs - These are used on roundabouts or junctions to inform road users which exit to take to get to their destination.
We offer a simple and easy way to buy direction signs with arrows, online. For more complex signs that have junction diagrams we recommend emailing us, we will then be able to provide a full quotation.
Where Can You Find These Signs
You will find directional signs all over the UK road network as well as on large industrial estates, university campuses and hospitals.
Directional signs come in a few different colours that change depending on their context and target audience.
Blue - this indicates that the sign relates to motorway traffic, the directions to a motorway, or that you are on a motorway.
Green - Green signs are used on primary routes, which are mostly ”A” roads.
White - These are for non-primary routes, and can include sub-areas of green or blue.
Brown - These are directions for local tourist routes or attractions.
Black - Black is used for directing heavy-duty traffic such as HGV’s along appropriate routes to industrial estates and sites.
Some directional signs will even include sub diagrams to indicate where certain types of traffic are prohibited
Other Permanent Sign Types
These permanent signs give information indicating how far a junction is away in the form of countdown markers. They are all rectangular and can in some instances feature regulatory signs within them.
Most permanent warning signs for the road are triangular in shape and feature a red border. These signs warn drivers of obstacles, lane restrictions, and significant changes in the road direction.
These regulate the types of traffic, for example, restricting heavy goods vehicles from certain routes. They may also prohibit manoeuvres such as U-turns, or set speed limits.
Directional signs are not just permanent, you will find them on road work sites offering guidance for diverted traffic. These can all be found in our temporary road sign category.
