Tactile and Braille Signage

Signage that is made for the visually impaired. Tactile signs are manufactured with raised letters where visually impaired people can 'feel' the letters. Braille signs are manufactured with a series of raised dots that the blind can 'read' by touch. Braille and Tactile Signs have to conform to the Unified Braille Code, the Building Code of Australia (D3.6) and Australian Standards (1428.1-2001).

See example

Temporary Sign

Any sign not intended for permanent installation, such as banners, window 'splashes' and signs at construction sites.

Transformer

Electrical equipment that converts input voltage and current to a different output voltage and current, mainly used in neon and l.e.d. signage.

Translucent

Transmitting light but causing sufficient diffusion to prevent perception of distinct images. In signmaking this refers mainly to vinyls that are used on lightbox and illuminated signs.
