Signage sustainability in hotels

Sign up to sustainable hospitality and become the traveller’s first choice

It’s a sign of the times that an ethical approach to hospitality can spur travellers to make choices that reward hosts who are good at driving eco-friendly agendas. It’s no secret that eco-conscious consumers are willing to pay more for goods and services that imbue environmental responsibility either.

So, what more can you do to attract and retain the guests who value sustainable hospitality?

For a start, there’s more to the quest for eco-friendly enlightenment than LED light bulbs and taking an axe to all-things plastic. If you really want to show your approach to sustainable hospitality and create a sense of greenness for your guests from the off, you need to get your message out front and centre.

The best place to start is with sustainable architectural signage that welcomes, guides and informs. It should come with impact and a reassuring visibility from the approach. It should then continue through the reception to the lift lobbies and corridors.

Signbox is one of the signage industry’s leaders in sustainable signage. That’s why we have a great range of eco-friendly sign solutions and products that can make a real difference to guests on the hunt for ‘greenness’.   

Beautiful, sustainable exterior bamboo signage

The Signbox Hybrid Sign System is a sustainable outdoor wayfinding sign system. It combines the weather resistant, sustainable qualities of exterior-grade bamboo with traditional signage materials. These include steel, glass and energy-efficient LED illumination – all bring hotel environments to life with ease.

Hybrid is a beautiful wayfinding solution. It’s tailored from the ground up to support single post and twin post signs as well as bamboo fin signs. It sits perfectly at home in woodland hotel settings, gardens and grounds.

It’s also easy to install and is affordable and tough. Hybrid’s bamboo structure has a weather resistance that will out-perform the best quality tropical hardwoods. Most importantly, it has powerful eco credentials.

Solar-powered signage that lights the way

Solar is clearly an unbeatable source when it comes to zero CO2 emissions and energy costs. However, the capabilities of Solar aren’t limited to solar photovoltaic panels on your rooftops.

Signbox’s Solar range includes a fantastic selection of solar-powered signage products. The range includes Solar Case, which is a practical approach to displaying illuminated information. Solar Eye is a stunning solar-powered in-set 360-degree, high-vis delineator. It’s great for footpaths and, with no need for hardwiring, it creates a stunning effect when it winds across hotel grounds. Then there’s Solar Smart Bench. It’s an ingenious outdoor bench that provides beautifully lit seating and includes USB mobile device charging from the solar energy it stores.

Solar Post is central to this superb range. Solar Post is a one-metre high, solar-powered control bollard system. It can be surface mounted or buried. This clever illuminated signage system monitors ambient light levels and automatically anticipates the transition from day to night. It even allows for seasonal changes. Its PIR sensors detect movement up to five metres away and its LEDs brighten the way for 10 seconds before gently dimming again. Solar Post is perfect for hotel car parks and walkways and offers safe, secure lighting with a lovely subtle hue.
