Formo guidance system

Guidance systems for object signposting

Guidance system which is matched according to requests of architects and consumers.

The insertable sign, FORMOeinschub is simple and easy to use, the inlay sheets can be changed quickly, and on request secured. A 5 mm mounting plate made of aluminium is additional available to remove the sign from the wall.

The system sign FORMOflach, is the flatest interchangeable sign on the market, with a construction height of only 4,5 mm and a secured 2 mm flush-mounted, anti-glare acrylic panel. It is often used for installation in wall-elements. Due to its low weight, it is ideally suited for adhesive mounting and particularly useful in hospitals, where hygienic conditions are of importance.

These very flat door and information signs are fast and easy to touch for people with visual impairment and are therefore well suited for barrier-free object signposting. The classic - FORMOnoble - offers door and information signs with bright white frames that create a text feeder with a high importance and appearance. Clear visibility ensure crystal-clear, secured acrylic plates with a thickness of 3-4 mm. They are easily changed out with a suction cup. All FORMO guidance systems are signs with text feeders which you can label yourself. If large paper-flexible signs are required, you’ll find them under the category FORMOvariabel. You'll also find a suitable and combinable solution for indoor and outdoor.

Please note that sufficient space for opening the frame elements needs to be considered when mounting.
