Comparison of Monument & Pylon Signs

Both monument and pylon sign are intended as large-scale venue designators. Available in a range of design options and materials, they’re applicable for similar purposes including branding, wayfinding and information sharing. They are both often used as event signs to show the venue floormap. Whether placed indoors or outdoors, they’ll capture attention, boost brand recognition and increase visitor flow. Thanks to custom illumination features, both models guarantee 24-hour visibility.

The most noticable differences between the two signs are their height and installation options. Monument signs are comparatively short and available in two forms: vertical models that can be seen from a long distance and modern eye-level models placed on the ground, rarely exceeding 5 feet. They may be made of heavier materials such as stone and concrete to blend in with the surrounding architecture whereas pylons are typically made of lighter mediums such as PVC and an aluminum post for elevation.

    Pylon Signs FAQs

    Q.

    What are pylon signs?

    A.
    Pylon signs are sturdy stand-alone display structures that can be equipped with internal or external illumination. When installed outdoors, plaza signs bring more visibility to a property.

    Q.

    What are plaza signs used for?

Their placement is generally selected according to the direction of traffic. To be more visible, pylon signs are positioned to face streets with heavy congestion, both for foot and car traffic. The most optimal use for plaza sign panels is in large commercial and corporate centers. In such settings, they can showcase multiple business names at the same time. Plaza signs function to let everyone passing in the area know which businesses are in their vicinity.
