3 Key Factors for Manufacturing High-Performance Signs
All signs are not created equally. The reality is that a well-made sign lasts longer and casts a more positive impression of your city, community, or organization. But more importantly, quality traffic signs help drivers stay safer on the road, especially during nighttime driving.
A family-owned and operated business that has been manufacturing top-quality reflective traffic signs for over 60 years, we know exactly what it takes to deliver a premium sign. A high level of workmanship, quality materials, and exceptional service all come together to achieve better traffic and safety signs. Which, in the end, leads to safer roads and neighborhoods.
Let’s dive into the importance of these three factors.
1. High-Quality Workmanship
At Dornbos Sign & Safety, we don’t outsource the manufacturing process to another company. Our expert team builds each sign at our location in Charlotte, Michigan, and we follow the same high standards set by our founders, Robert Dornbos and John Callender, decades ago.
We take pride in every sign we build and invest in employee training and state-of-the-art tools to ensure we continue providing our customers with quality signs.
Because of our high level of workmanship, we’re able to create a wide range of signs at competitive prices, including parking signs, pedestrian signs, bicycle path signs, and solar LED traffic signs. We also offer custom street signs, real estate signs, and towing signs, so we can fulfill any need you might have, no matter how unique.
2. Premium Reflective Materials
In the traffic sign industry, nothing is more important than safety. That’s why we guarantee that all of our signs meet or exceed MUTCD (Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices) standards.
To achieve this, we use premium 3M reflective materials to manufacture high-performance traffic signs with the right level of reflectivity. 3M materials provide industry-leading retroreflectivity and enhance legibility because of their highly efficient retroreflective optics.
Studies show that sign luminance is a critical factor in reducing crashes. With high enough luminance, drivers can read signs in a shorter time and with more accuracy — giving them the essential information they need to drive safely.
At Dornbos Sign and Safety, we can customize your traffic signs with your choice of high-quality 3M reflective sheeting . Our selection includes the very best on the market: 3M's Diamond Grade VIP Reflective Series and 3M Diamond Grade Cubed Series. We also offer the 3M Premium Protective Overlay Film to increase the longevity of your reflective sheeting.
3. Personal Service
The third key factor that is necessary for crafting premium road and safety signs is personalized service. Over the years, we’ve formed relationships with city and county road agencies, schools, road contractors, real estate agencies, and private manufacturers all over the country. While we have a broad clientele, we go above and beyond for each one of our customers.
Let us know your needs and budget, and we'll create premium-quality signs that will look like new for years.
