There is no doubt that eye-catching window displays and impactful entry signage can immediately and effectively capture consumer interest, which can be valuable for increasing customer traffic. Within the store, ceiling signs and banners can also be used to direct customers to specific departments, seasonal items and promotional products without taking up valuable floor space or interfering with the overall shopping experience.
Unfortunately, hanging and updating signs can be not only burdensome and time-consuming but dangerous, as well. Many ceiling and window signs require the use of ladders, which can be difficult to navigate in a fully-merchandised store and can be a hazard for employees. In fact, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, falls accounted for approximately 16% of employee workplace injuries in 2016.
To ensure a safe and efficient experience while hanging signs, banners, posters and point-of-purchase items, you can incorporate the Sign-EEZ™ System into your workplace. This “no-ladder” system was invented specifically to prevent ladder injuries in retail environments. The Sign-EEZ™ system utilizes the innovative Aluminum Telescopic Pole & Gripper, available in 8’, 12’, 18’ or 24’ lengths, to enable you to attach a wide variety of magnetic sign holders to most metal ceiling grids, beams, trusses, girders, utility risers, and wire grids. Put it to work in your store to see why retailers have trusted the Sign-EEZ™ System for over 30 years.
