Sign Supply Canada – What You Need to Know!

Sign Supply in Canada

Did you know the first road signs were designed for cyclists back in the 1800s. It’s safe to say, we’ve made significant advancements since then especially when it comes to how we use signage and who the information applies to. We now utilize over 2,000 different traffic signs across Canada to communicate with motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. 

Supplying the Most Common Traffic Signs

When you think of traffic signs, there are probably a few that immediately come to mind. Here are the most recognizable signs:

Stop Signs – The stop sign is the only sign with an octagon shape. It’s vibrant red colour is hard to miss which helps it stand out as one of the most identifiable signs on our roadways. 

Speed Limit Signs – Speed limit signs are used on residential streets, in school zones and on many highways across Canada. They inform drivers of the maximum travel speed in kilometers per hour.

Construction Signs – Construction signs are for temporary applications and generally orange in colour. They are used to alert drivers of upcoming road work and other temporary construction changes. 

At Barricades and Signs, we manufacture and supply all types of standard signage including regulatory, warning, guide and information signs for Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. 

Custom Traffic Signs and Specialty Sign Supply

You may find yourself in a situation where you need a custom traffic sign or specialty sign. Some examples may include project specific signage or a no trespassing sign for your private property. As a one-stop shop for sign supply in Canada, we can work with you to create any design you dream up. 

Sign Supply Resources

All traffic signs across Canada are regulated by the Federal Highway Transportation Administration’s Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Device (MUTCD). To help you navigate these guidelines we have a variety of resources available to you on our website. This includes provincial sign catalogues for British Columbia and Alberta. Check ’em out!
