External directory signs make it possible to display lots of information in a structured way and allows the end user to remove, replace and reposition each piece of information independently.
External directory signs may be appropriate for business parks, trading estates, retail parks and any other estate or complex establishment with multiple buildings. In such instances, they are often used at the main entrance to describe the businesses and buildings within (often accompanied by a large map visible from cars and lorries).
Directories can be manufactured in a number of ways depending on the desired size, look and budget. While being extremely practical the right directory will also be an attractive piece of furniture.
Signs mounted on a single post, but with multiple “Fingers” which are able to point in different directions
Monolith (or Totem) signs are attractive and impressive freestanding pillars that can be manufactured in a variety of shapes and styles
Signs that stand out, literally. Typically used in high streets and alleys. Projecting signs can be both beautiful and practical
Wall mounted signs are signs that are fixed directly to a wall (as opposed to being attached to posts in the ground, hung from a ceiling or other method of fixing).
Fabulous and quick service received from Wards for new signage. Would highly recommend
I commissioned Wards of Bristol to produce a bronze memorial plaque, which featured the intricate engraving of a scarce butterfly. The resulting work is beautiful and has completely surpassed my expectations.
The service received was also fast, courteous and well-priced, and I would gladly recommend Wards to anyone I know.
Ward Signs was incredibly professional, prompt, and just plain wonderful to deal with. The quality of the product far exceeded my expectations; I absolutely will order from Ward again!
