Finger Posts are used to direct visitors around public open spaces. They are found in parks, nature reserves, town centres, universities and airports. The number of directional arms will vary to suit the navigational challenges being presented. Finger posts can be produced in powder coated aluminium, recycled plastic, oak or treated softwood.
Bollards are normally produced in either Oak or pressure treated softwood. While bollards can be used to control traffic flow in a park environment they offer a discreet way to direct visitors and can include waymarker discs or routed images. Bollards are more discreet than a full finger post and can be positioned in clusters to direct visitors in several directions.
Waymarker Discs can be produced in PVC or GRP. They direct vistors and can be fitted to existing structures making a low cost option for directing visitor flow. The standard size is 76mm dia and we recommend using the GRP option due to the high level of durability.
This section of our website introduces our range of signs and products for directing visitors around public open spaces. You may also be interested in our range of Entrance Signs, interpretation panels and notice boards. These options provide a range of ways to communicate with your visitors using both permanent and short term graphics.
Waymarker discs are a popular and low cost means of directing visitors around open spaces and influencing their behaviour.
Commonly 76mm diameter the standard waymarker discs are for Footpaths, Bridleways, cycle routes & restricted access but we produce individual way markers with route names, crests, logos and colours to suit. Waymarkers can be produced at any size to suit.
A wide range of waymarker disc examples are shown below. Please request a quote for your specific requirements.
Timber Bollards are a versatile and effective way of communicating and influencing the behaviour of visitors to country parks and public open spaces. They can be discreet and very simple or large and contain a range of information including printed graphics.
