Multi-directional signs make the best possible use of limited space and add clarity by placing all directions, amenities, facilities, floors, businesses or locations that a visitor or site user might be trying to find within one focal signage point.

Great directional signs help anybody easily navigate a complex or premise, including those with potentially confusing layouts or numerous locations, such as retail centres, hospitals, outdoor visitor attractions, and busy commercial compounds.

The specialist signage team at Fitzpatrick Woolmer also creates custom signage for public sector facilities such as universities and schools and for local councils and city planners who want to make their spaces accessible and enjoyable.

While the primary aim of directional signs with multiple arms is to help people or vehicles find their destination, they can also assist with health and safety by ensuring nobody attempts to access a restricted area or needs to rely on on-site personnel and reception staff to help if they become lost or disoriented.

The Advantages of Multi-Directional Signage

Most businesses, visitor centres, facilities, and attractions recognise that professionally made signage is key to ensuring visitors, guests, and workers can navigate the site, find the premise or point they are looking for, and follow easily interpretable arrows, text, and icons without further assistance.

The key benefit of directional signposts with multiple arms is that sites with complex layouts that are often tricky to move around can incorporate all of the relevant information within one sign, ladder signage, or informational board.

We use various durable materials, including aluminium, hardwood timbers and stainless steel, alongside our environmentally responsible recycled plastic signage, which is ideal for sites with eco credentials or outdoor environments where you need to minimise the impact of visitors and foot traffic on the setting.

Multi-directional arrows can reduce the number of signage points required, minimise reliance on reception teams or the helpdesk, and avoid congestion and late appointments where visitors take longer than expected to arrive due to complicated signage.

Choosing the Right Directional Signposts

We work with a broad range of businesses, public sector departments, borough and town councils, and private clients, each of whom may have different requirements and priorities.

Each Fitzpatrick Wolmer signage model is tailored to your requirements. We can discuss the fonts, lettering, and symbols used on each directional arm to ensure they match your brand, aesthetic, or backdrop.

Configuring multi-directional signage on the site or premise is ideal since visitors can be confident that the information displayed is accurate. Using coordinated colours and logos can also enhance the visibility of each signage placement, whether freestanding at a junction, mounted within your premises, or inside main entrances.

Should you require high-quality signage as soon as possible, we can also suggest multi-directional signposts with faster turnaround times, with artwork proofs shared with you before production to ensure the finished signage is exactly as you expect.

Different Formats and Types of Directional Signposts

The multi-directional signs featured above are just some of the many models made to order, and the best formats may depend on the nature of your site and the needs of your visitors or site users.

  • Vertical signage, like the Enigma Directional Sign, presents a wide, high-format signage panel which can be broken up into sections to feature maps, branding, illustrations or large-scale lettering, along with directions to each location or facility in clear, bold fonts underneath.
  • Classic multi-directional finger posts, such as the Grenadier and Traditional Fingerpost, use a simple, sturdy post with up to three directional arms affixed in the appropriate direction.
  • Ladder directional signs, including the Recycled Plastic Ladder Sign and Grenadier Directional Sign, stack each location or point of interest vertically, maximising the area along the face of each signage panel to print, engrave, or etch your lettering.

If you are replacing outdated directional signage, you may already know which model is most suited. Otherwise, you can consider the colours and materials used in each signpost to determine which will look natural within the intended location and how visible the directions will be to visitors arriving on foot or by vehicle.

Applications for High-Visibility Multi-Directional Signs

These practical, functional signs are used in numerous settings, but primarily for those with potentially large numbers of visitors or varied site user demographics. Examples include hospitals, university campuses, and retail parks, which want visitors to find their way with ease yet have multiple departments, offices, or stores within their premises.

Directional signposts are also used for tourist and visitor attractions, directing visitors to ticketing booths, helpdesks, points of interest, and specific paths or trails.
