4.18.2. Graphics and Placement. The Type B4 sign is always wall-mounted. An organizational
emblem may appear in the upper left corner with the unit name, or it may appear alone, centered
in the sign panel as shown in Figure 4.22. These two variations may not be used together. Only
one sign is permitted at each building entrance.
4.18.3. Colors. White letters and numbers on standard brown background, full color shield.
4.18.4. Dimensions. 450 mm x 450 mm (1'- 6" x 1'- 6")
4.18.5. Emblem (if used). Authorized organizational emblem, 100 mm x 100 mm (4" x 4") if
used in upper left corner or 300 mm x 300 mm (12" x 12") if centered on sign (See Figure 4.22).
4.18.6. Rules. 3 mm (1/8") wide, white tape.
4.18.7. Layouts. Either the standard layout or the expanded layout may be used, based on the
length of message required. If the required message on a building entry sign is too long to fit on
the standard layout shown below, use the expanded layout. The expanded layout has smaller
lettering than the standard layout and can therefore accommodate more lines and more characters
per line. See Figures 4.22 and 4.23 for sign layouts.
4.18.8. Standard Layout Typography.
Unit Name: upper and lower case Helvetica medium, 50 mm (2") capital letter height,
Secondary Information: upper and lower case Helvetica regular, 50 mm (2") capital letter
height, flush left.
The message area will accommodate three lines, with a maximum line length of 10 tiles
or characters per line.
Number: Street address number, Helvetica medium, 75 mm (3") numbers, flush left.
