Q.Why do we need social distancing signs in elevators?
Inherently enclosed spaces, elevators can conveniently fuel the spread given the unavoidable proximity. Hence, it is essential that people practice social distancing while using elevators to safeguard themselves and others. Social distancing elevator signs act as visual reminders to ensure compliance with social distancing practices and communicate the ground rules set for using elevators.
Q.What steps can I take to prevent potential spread through shared elevators?
If you have elevators in your facility, there are things you should do to limit the risk of spread. You can take steps to encourage people to use the stairs as far as possible and particularly when elevator lobbies are crowded. You can install floor markings and decals in lobbies and inside elevators to reinforce physical distancing and guide people about where they must stand.
Limiting the number of people inside the elevator at a time can also help.
You may install stanchions to create and promote the use of one-way passageways. People should be asked to eliminate/minimize surface touching and use an object such as a toothpick or their elbows to operate elevator buttons. Additionally, you should also repeatedly remind people about the importance of wearing face masks and washing their hands frequently, especially after touching elevator buttons or other similar surfaces. Installing a simple sanitizing station inside/outside the elevator will promote hand hygiene.
Q.What are the ideal places to install social distancing signs on elevators?
You should install social distancing signs in elevator lobbies and approaches as well as inside elevators. These signs can communicate occupant restrictions and face mask requirements along with guiding people about where to stand. You may use a mix of wall, door, and floor signs to ensure the risk and safety communication is hard to miss.
Q.How can I ensure my social distancing signs are well-adjusted for larger audiences?
To ensure your social distancing in elevators signs reach a wider audience, you can opt for bilingual social distancing signs that are available in English and Spanish.
You may also have some of these signs in Braille to aid the visually impaired. Our TactileTouch signs use Grade 2 Braille and are ADA and California Braille specifications compliant. Another way to ensure your social distancing communication reaches as many people as possible is to have the relevant signs placed strategically at all highly visible and high-contact points.
Q.What sign options do I have to implement social distancing in elevators?
To have occupants practice physical distancing in elevators, you can choose from our range of rigid and adhesive social distancing signs and labels. These signs communicate mask requirement, maximum capacity, and maintaining distance, and can be used both inside and outside the elevators. Stand-here floor signs with footprints are proven effective in getting people to keep a distance.
You can also use our A-frame folding floor signs, signposts, and large door decals in the lobbies to prevent overcrowding and make people stay six-feet away even while waiting. We also offer designer ShowCase signs and Braille signs to ensure all your sign requirements can be met.
Q.How can I ensure people stand at a sufficient distance inside elevators?
Our anti-skid vinyl floor signs and markers have been designed precisely to achieve this goal. These come with a permanent adhesive backing and last you a long time.
Opt for our highly visible SlipSafe footprints to indicate where occupants should stand. You may also choose our SlipSafe floor signs that convey the elevator’s carrying capacity. In addition to these, use our wall signs to remind people about the social distancing practices to be followed.
