Project

xsign worked directly with UCLH on the wayfinding scheme and signage package at the University College London Hospital’s Royal ENT department.

The challenge in designing a wayfinding scheme in a hospital environment is the complexity of an environment in which getting from A to B quickly can be crucial. We’ve combined our wayfinding consultancy, project management, product design and installation capabilities to offer a complete solution to the client.

We’ve supplied high contrast directory boards on our
patented Jigsaw system, cut letters in the corridors and
illuminated door signs to highlight rooms that are in use,
alongside iconography and inclusive sign design.

The front reception area welcomes visitors with a feature sign presenting the organisation’s values. The sign is 5mm frosted lucite with polished edge detail. The face is finished with fine matt texture, giving a frosted appearance. The face is coated with high
grade paint finish and flush mounted to the wall on our modular Jigsaw system.

Hospitals have rooms that are subject to change. In these environments it’s important that signage is flexible and meets the needs of users. We’ve utilised our patented Puzzle system to offer a flexible paper-holding solution. Using the secret locking system, users can quickly and easily insert a piece of paper to denote the use of the room. Puzzle provides a permanent sign type, in-keeping with the signage scheme, whilst offering flexibility.

We’ve also provided an illuminated Room in Use sign, featuring 25mm Aluminium channel to header and footer. We’ve used frosted clear acrylic with direct print to face at high resolution 1800dpi. The face is lit with Red RGB LED internal illumination with 12V PSU.
