Design, Color, and More: A Sign Blog

Businesses need signs from before they open until the day they close. At the beginning, you may need signs that advertise your business location such as arrows or lit up signs with your logo and store name. While owning your store, you may want signs that tell customers how to behave such as "don't bring ice cream into the shop" or "no shirt, no shoes, no service". You may want signs for special sales or for unique products, and you may even need signs for off-site marketing events such as trade shows. Then, at the end, you may need a sign that says "going out of business". Regardless of where you are in your business journey, this blog is designed to help you choose the best signs for your business.

An Efficient Power Pole Classification System

A high-voltage transformer that sits on top of a power pole can become damaged during inclement weather events. Accessing a pole quickly is the responsibility of a power provider. Accurate markings on a pole will ensure that a power company is compliant. Pole tags are a staple item that should be acquired if a tagging system is archaic or absent.

A Tag's Purpose

A power pole tag is a type of signage that is used for identification purposes. Some power companies may store sensitive information via a tag. The sensitive information may be stored through a barcode system. The use of a barcode system will ensure that power company employees are able to access vital details about a pole.

These details may include the date and time that a pole was serviced, the identity of the person who provided the service, and the exact address of a power pole. The use of a series of tags helps power suppliers keep track of the poles that they are responsible for maintaining. The tags will keep the power components within a specific region organized and accessible.

A Tag's Design

Power poles are mainly located outdoors. All of the electrical wirings that are on a residential or commercial property owner's land will be connected to a public pole. Each pole may be responsible for providing electricity to more than one house or business. A tag's design can be reflective of whether a power pole is designated for residential or industrial use.

The color of a tag or its shape can reflect upon what properties are receiving power from a pole. If a color or shape classification process is used to tag each power pole, an electrician won't need to trace wires back to a specific parcel of land. Instead, they can locate a tag, based on its color and shape.

Upon identifying a tag as the proper one, they can either view a  numerical code that has been imprinted on the tag or they can use a scanning device to access information that has been recorded via barcode.

Security Features

Power pole tags may be constructed of a weather-resistant metal material. Some tag companies may feature tags that have been coated with a resilient finish. Either of these features will preserve the appearance of a tag. A quality tagging system should consist of individual tags that each contain holes in them. The holes can be used to install fasteners that are needed to anchor a series of tags.
