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