SignPlot 3

Sign are defined through a simple form

The UK’s leading traffic sign design software comes with built-in state-of-the-art structural design and doesn’t need an expensive CAD system.

SignPlot is the only system to fully automate the layout and spacing rules of the Traffic Signs Regulations and Traffic Signs Manual, including TSRGD 2002 & 2011 and the Area-wide authorisations for England. It is even ready for the new types of parking plate and roadworks sign that will be in the 2015 TSRGD.

SignPlot has an amazing tool that automates pretty well everything about direction signs: destinations, mileages, panels, patches, symbols, arrows, route numbers and any regulatory or warning signs shown on them.

SignPlot makes sign design quick, accurate, colourful and economical for both new and experienced designers.

MEETING THE REGULATIONS

DfT design standards have brought consistency to the presentation of information on road signs, but have also made the design task challenging for anyone unfamiliar with the complex layout and spacing rules.

The automation that SignPlot provides enables easy construction of everything from the simplest flag-type, to the most complex gantry-mounted lane indication sign. It helps avoid sign layout errors, whilst minimising design time. Software training costs are reduced and productivity is improved. SignPlot displays a message if it spots a potential mistake and offers to correct the problem. 

OVER 750 STANDARD SYMBOLS

SignPlot is supplied with library files containing accurate symbols and signs that scale automatically to the correct size for use on direction signs and parking plates. These are updated regularly generally in advance of new symbols being published by the DfT, as SignPlot is used by them to produce official documents such as the Area-wide authorisations to English authorities.

SignPlot can be supplied with your logo and any tourist, public transport or other symbols specific to your area, or you can import your own bitmap images for use on signs.
