What is a wayfinding totem or monolith sign?

Monoliths and totem signs can be used both internally and externally for a number of purposes. If you’re looking to reinforce your branding, provide navigational direction to visitors, or advertise your business, totem signs are ideal for these uses. Versatile and flexible, our monolith and totem signs are made to fit their environment, but distinctive and diverse enough to stand out for your visitors.

Totems and monolith signs are versatile, hard-wearing and uniquely customisable freestanding, vertical signage displays that can provide impactful messaging, wayfinding and visitor directions in a broad array of settings.

The vertical profile and visibility of a totem or monolith is an excellent way to enhance your visitor experience, ensure your business, site, or area is welcoming and accessible, and provide equally informative guidance for passenger vehicles and pedestrians.

Regardless of the shape, material, size or colour you’re looking for, Fitzpatrick Woolmer can create the perfect monolith and totem signage solution for you to give your company the sign that it needs.

One example of our professional craftsmanship is the Enigma™ Monolith, combining stainless steel with printed aluminium n-Viro™ trays. This totem sign is vandal resistant and has the added option of a notice board poster display for eye-catching maps or images. Like all our signs, the Enigma™ Monolith is manufactured bespoke to each order, offering businesses options to customise their signs.

Each of our products is supported by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, ensuring impeccable quality and resistance against adverse weather conditions.

What are the Benefits of Totems and Monoliths?

Monolith and totem signs are popular features in entranceway signage, roadway directional signs or wayfinding signs, with an enhanced signage volume. Ordering a totem or monolith sign from Fitzpatrick Woolmer assures you of the following:

  • Fantastic visibility and informative signage from any distance.
  • Single or double-sided signage for clear displays and maximum signage space.
  • Durable, secure and weatherproof signage that will remain in pristine condition.
  • A wide array of sizing and design options to incorporate shapes, styles and formats.
  • Vandal and tamper-proof fixings with removable graphics panels for security and adaptability.

Professionally designed and constructed monoliths and totems are fantastic additions to any commercial centre, education facility, healthcare site or visitor attraction, with a wealth of signage space and customisation to reflect the key information you wish to communicate.

Popular Applications for Monolith or Totem Signage

The variety of finishes, materials and designs possible through totem or monolith signage make this option well-suited to a diverse range of sites and applications.

Among our recent projects, Fitzpatrick Woolmer has created custom signage in a totem or monolith style for town centres, public parks, memorial gardens, village and city councils, schools, colleges and universities, aviation centres, harbours, nature reserves, sports facilities, and many other clients.

Contrasting materials, colours and the height of a monolith or totem sign are also ideal for hospitals and health centres, complexes with multiple buildings or departments, and business parks, where visitor experiences can be fundamental to the sense of professionalism they receive when entering an area that is complex to navigate without well-designed directional signage.

Regardless of whether totems are used for wayfinding in bustling city centres, tourist signs for major attractions, or an informative road sign for potential visitors, all customers have the option to select their preferences for the finish, material, colour and content. For an internal monolith, an informational totem can be created with either one or two sides, maximizing the benefit to visitors.

All of our commercial signage has varying costs. Please take a look at our guide to commercial signage costs for further information.
