Project Description

The Via Sign System

The Via sign system is a stylish yet cost effective range of wayfinding signage.

Customized Wayfinding with Branding in Mind

The Via modular system comprises fingerposts, monoliths and wall mounted signs which are constructed using robust materials to withstand the street environment. Each product can be customized to suit a variety of settings.

The Via sign system can:

  • provide wayfinding information to pedestrians in busy areas
  • coordinate transport information, with places of interest and distance / walking time
  • denote different regions through distinct finials with unique colors or custom designs
  • be easily maintained with a proprietary retention socket mounting system.

A wide array of customization options makes the Via sign system a versatile, cost effective and flexible system to suit your brand’s needs. Use color coding to tie locations to maps and customize the pole with paint or engraving to tie in your branding.

Modular fingers can be replaced if information changes or the sign is damaged. Using a glass display and digital print with the monoliths or wall mounted signs provides a cost effective method of updating maps or information as necessary. And the shot peened stainless steel posts are extremely durable, resistant to scratching and provide low reflectivity.

IDS provides full design and planning services for the Via sign system and can also liaise with local planning and permitting authorities.
