FDC signs indicating the building address, building name, directional arrow or any other copy which indicates property being served by the connection should be 2" high.

FDC Signs Official and Compliant

The viewing distances listed in this chart reflect the maximum viewing distance for the sign under favorable viewing conditions.
Favorable viewing conditions are those which allow for a clear, unobstructed view of the message on the sign. Examples of favorable viewing conditions are a bright lighting source over the sign, clear weather conditions, and a clear line of sight with no obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles and no other nearby signs creating distractions.
In unfavorable conditions, the sign is viewable at up to half the favorable distance. Unfavorable viewing conditions are those which make it difficult to read the message of the sign. Examples of this are poor lighting such as a dimly lit room, obstructions blocking the view of the sign from certain angles, poor weather conditions, and other signs posted nearby which create a distraction.
It is the responsibility of the end user to determine the correct size, viewing distance, sign positioning, and sign size for your specific hazard. According to the ANSI Z353.2 sign standard, a ratio of 25 feet of viewing distance per inch of text height, under favorable viewing conditions, should be used to determine the size of your sign. Under unfavorable viewing conditions, such as in low light or for signs with complex messages, the ratio of viewing distance to text height is 12.5 feet to 1 inch.

Printing Methods

We choose our printing processes for each product carefully so you receive the best quality product at the lowest price with industry-leading turnaround times. Depending on your size, material, quantity, and other factors, your sign will print using one of our carefully-tested methods.

SafetySign Printing
Cross-Hatch Ink Adhesion Test

SafetySign.com’s advanced printing process undergoes a stringent cross-hatching test. This specifically tests the adhesion and resistance to separation of the inks from the sign. In testing, a sample from the printing process is scored and covered in adhesive tape. The tape is removed and the sample assessed for adhesion quality.

We use a three-stage process to test all of our printing processes. We print our signs using only the processes that pass all three stages, giving you the highest quality signage possible.

Fonts

The text is printed in PF Din Cond Pro Medium and Din Alternate fonts.

The FDC (Left Arrow) Sign from SafetySign.com uses this font because legibility at a distance is superior with this font than with others. The text on this sign is 6 inches in height on the 18 x 12" size which complies with International Fire Code (IFC) requirements. The text also has a 1 inch text stroke width, which allows it to be compliant with fire department requirements that call for a specified text stroke width.
