pile ou face – dda compliant glass sign insert frame

Pile ou Face is a sleek, interior wall-mounted sign solution designed by Jean Christopher Bollache.

This DTP insert sign system comprises a range of aluminium profiles in a choice of finishes including natural anodised, micro sandblasted and a mirror polish. Combined with tactile and Braille lettering, the Pile ou Face system is perfect media for DDA compliant signs.

Two insert panel materials in glass (V-verre) and silica acrylic (P-PMMA) are available as standard and are 8mm thick. A locking grub screw and allen key are included for fast, easy assembly.

This versatile system is available in two depths and various lengths:

  •  70mm depth x 70mm, 140mm, 210mm and 420mm
  •  210mm depth x 90mm, 210mm and 420mm

 Signbox recommends wall-mounted signs are positioned at an adequate height to avoid obstruction and make navigation an instinctive experience. Ideally, they should be installed at the same height throughout the building within a band of 1400mm to 1700mm above finished floor level.

Pile ou Face signage solutions are only available to purchase in the UK from Signbox.
