About The Client
Many schools have started labeling their doors with fire safe door tags – this allows any emergency team to access the proper door in any time of need. Barton Malow recently reached out to us about door safety tags in the Roseville School District, and since we did a lot of Roseville’s bid work, we were happy to help.
Door tags are best done in contrasting colors and we also like to make sure the number on them is at least 10″ tall, which allows emergency teams to be able to see the door from a further distance. The tags are typically produced in two different ways – they can be made with self-adhesive vinyl (which allows the sign to stick directly to the door) or the other option is a Dibond sign. A Dibond sign is a metal sign with a plastic composite core that allows the sign to be lightweight. They can also be double-sided in case they’re being stuck to a window.
Roseville went with the double-sided Dibond material since they would be applying the sign to brick – the adhesive vinyl option would not work in these places. Our installers went out to Roseville’s 13 different schools and labeled each door. The installers took extra care to ensure the job was done correctly, and reached out to the clients if the sign placement looked a little off.
Roseville and Barton Malow were appreciative of the time and energy we spent on getting these installed correctly. This project also led us to some other great opportunities for all of us to work together again.
