4.9.3. Other Graphics and Lettering. No additional graphics or lettering are to be applied.
4.9.4. Materials. The symbol and letterforms will be constructed of stainless steel or aluminum,
approximately " in depth. The symbol and letterforms are to be mounted in such a way as to
provide a minimum " clearance from the background surface. The background material should
be durable and require minimal maintenance.
4.9.5. Colors. No color will be applied (factory or field applied) to the symbol or
letterforms. The visible metallic surfaces may have either a brushed or polished finish.
Background material requiring either a factory or field applied color will be either Standard
Blue (see paragraph 2.18.1.) or Standard Brown (see paragraph 2.18.2.). Backgrounds
composed of masonry units, such as brick, concrete or stone, will use a mortar color that
closely matches the unit color to optimize visibility of the symbol and letterforms. Entrance
signs with backgrounds composed of light-colored stucco and consistent with a base-wide
architectural theme are acceptable.
4.9.6. Proportions/Shapes. Due to the diversity of some existing entrance signs, the application
of the symbol and letterforms composition may vary in overall size, but must maintain the
based on "Arial Black" font. The shapes of neither the symbol nor the letterforms are to be
altered in any way.
4.9.7. Visibility. Position and orient the symbol and letterforms in a way that provides the best
visibility from public ways. Size the symbol and letterforms proportional composition as large
as is practical so as to be easily read from a reasonable distance. Avoid a cluttered appearance
by having no more than one application of the symbol and letterforms at an entrance, unless the
entrance sign is oriented to be viewed from either side.
4.9.8. Layout. See Figure 4.7 for sign layout options. Dimensions shown are based on
application to the standard Sign Type A2. When conditions require a larger or smaller
application of the symbol and letterforms, all dimensional proportions are to be maintained.
4.10. Entry Gate Sign Type A3.
4.10.1. Placement. Certain secondary entrances are used primarily by personnel employed on the
base, rather than by visitors. These entrances do not require major identification signs such as
the Type A1 and A2, and may be identified with the Type A3 sign at the entry gate.
4.10.2. General Description. The Type A3 sign can be used in combination with Type A1 and
A2 signs when the repetition of the gate name is helpful to the visitor, such as when the entry is a
long distance from the entrance. The Type A3 sign is mounted with the Type E1 Base Warning
Sign. (See paragraph 6.12.2 for additional guidelines.)
4.10.3 Colors. White letters on standard brown background.
4.10.4. Dimensions. 300 mm x 900 mm (1'- 0" x 3'- 0").
