DURABLE CUSTOM WOOD SIGNS
Today the majority of traditional, plastic tactile braille signs rely on adhesive to hold together plastic layers of different colors. Usually there’s a back substrate, and a top layer from which letters and pictograms are cut. This method works well in many situations, however, a lot of ADA signs end up missing missing braille or letters. If using materials with different rates of thermal and hygroscopic expansion then product failure becomes a “when” not “if”.
Risk of adhesive failure was especially true for wooden ADA signs. Using traditional methods, wood had to be “plasticized” with layers of coatings in order for adhesives to bond well. This process was both costly and inconsistent.
Green Dot Sign® wooden ADA signs are different because of our new, patent pending 3D printing process.
3D printing process – Via our manufacturing process 3D printed material directly bonds to the wood sign base. A special layer highly receptive to 3D printed “inks” bonds with the topmost wood fibers of the sign blank. The raised characters are made directly on this topmost wood fiber matrix.
No adhesives – Our signs don’t rely on adhesive to hold plastic and wood together, so braille and other tactile content are vandal resistant than traditional plastic ADA signs and last longer.
Industry best warranty – Most Green Dot Signs come with an industry best warranty.
These room number signs contain brass numbers and clear 3D printed braille on a walnut sign base with a shallow edge chamfer.
