Guidance and orientation systems - Barrier-free guidance systems - Tactile door signs

Since 1985 are we producing and developing orientation systems for indoor and outdoor areas of high quality in Austria and are supplying distributors throughout Europe.

Door signs of the shelf or to design individually, made of aluminium, acryl, stainless steel, glass and with frames for changeable text inlays are only a small part of our wide range of signs. We print signs for indoor and outdoor areas upon customer wishes. We are the experts for signage to your individually request.

A very important cornerstone of our company SCHILDER Systeme GmbH is tactile signage, consisting of door signs, aluminium or plastic handrail signs, tactile handrail foils, ground surface indicators, tactile stickers and a tactile floor plan. We created our very own special varnish which allows us to make tactile signage touchable and therefore readable for people with visual impairment and blind people. Self-adhesive foils with braille or prism writing are perfect to upgrade existing sign systems or for technical description. Handrail signs with touchable tactile writings enhance a flawless use of a public, barrier free object.

We can offer the best service because of our existing dealer network. The dealers learn about the advantages of the sign guidance system in workshops, so they can cope with the demands and wishes of the customers and architects. More than one patent speaks for innovation strength of the SCHILDER Systeme GmbH company in development form guidance and orientation systems.

Awards like the one gained at the Creative Challenge from SwissQprint shows the creativity in design from door signs of our company SCHILDER Systeme GmbH.

Door signs

We decide here which materials and qualities are perfect for your door sign. Each of the following door signs has its own, special quality and advantage. We want to show you these and support you to find the sign with the right use for you. Whether it’s an office sign to design yourself with changeable text feeder, a company sign for your entrance with direct-print, a glass door sign with stainless steel spacers or a reasonable acrylic door sign.

Stainless steel door signs are in particular use in object signposting if there is in general a lot of stainless steel installed. Stainless steel is a long-lasting fine material, and because of the folded up stainless steel plate, text feeders can be included without a disturbing frame.

Glass door signs shine because of their clear reflecting glass plates. Mounting takes place with stainless steel spacers.

Framed door signs made of aluminium offer a quick change of the text feeders. The hardly visible frames have non-reflecting acrylic glass plates to protect the text feeders, which you can label yourself. Some systems require tools to change the text feeder, others are toolless changeable. At the moment, these door sign – systems are the most selling and suitable signs for tactile inscription.

Aluminium door signs with aluminium extruded profile are robust, inexpensive and with coloured frames deliverable.

Acryl glass door signs are quickly made in all special sizes.

Tactile guidance systems

We take a closer look at accessibility in object signposting and orientation in public buildings for many years now. Therefore, our focus is not only reduced to visual, but also extended to haptic or rather tactile presentation of information. So, that not only people who can see but also people with visual impairment can perceive the information on door signs, direction signs or site plans.

Haptic elements as building layouts, tactile profile inscription and the braille inscription make it possible for people with visual impairment to orient themselves and find their way on their own without a problem. In Austria, public buildings have to be equipped for the disabled since 2016. We are in pulse of the time because of our longstanding focus on the sector of tactile guidance systems.

The from the company SCHILDER Systeme GmbH developed print technology to produce haptic elements and inscriptions as tactile and braille lettering can be designed according to DIN 32986 and DIN 32976 as well as Ö-NORM 2015.

Tactile guidance systems require a detailed plan. Go the way with us for a barrier free object signposting through floor guidelines, stair markings, tactile site plan, tactile handrail signs or signs with tactile inscription.
