What are Maximum Occupancy Signs?

To reduce congestion and enhance social-distancing space, businesses may need to further limit their building’s occupancy, depending upon state/community COVID-19 mandates and regulations. Some states (and businesses) have set this limit as a percentage of currently allowed occupancy (e.g., 50% of fire code), while others have established a specific number of individuals by building square footage. No matter the occupancy formula, businesses can use Maximum Occupancy Signs to indicate to customers and others the most up-to-date number of persons allowed in the building at one time.

Types of Maximum Occupancy Signs

There’s practically no limit when it comes to the range of Maximum Occupancy Sign types available. In many cases, these are utilized in exterior locations, where durability is critical. Below, we’ve listed just a few of the more common types of Maximum Occupancy signs:

  • Aluminum Signs – Aluminum signs are durable and weather-resistant, and they can be cut in a variety of shapes: square/rectangle, circle/oval, rounded corners, or custom. These signs feature a solid polyethylene core between two sheets of .008-inch aluminum; direct-printed with UV inks. Install on a wall, hang, or place in a stand. Learn More
  • Plastic Signs – Our plastic signs are made from high-quality rigid PVC and are available in sizes up to 48 x 96 inches (and in 3mm and 6mm thicknesses). Because we direct-print with UV inks, your design will withstand abrasion, fading, and weather. Have your plastic sign cut to various shapes and printed single- or double-sided. Learn More
  • Acrylic Signs – An ideal substitute for traditional glass, acrylic signs are made from a cast polymer that is colorless, transparent, and durable. We direct-print with UV inks, either first-surface or second-surface (back side); with polished or unpolished edges. Learn More
  • Opaque Window Decals – Place these adhesive decals on any window, glass door, or other smooth surface. Available in various shapes, including square/rectangle, rounded corners, circle/oval, custom, and custom with border. Printed at nearly any size with UV inks for vibrancy and durability. Learn More
  • Yard Signs – Corrugated plastic signs featuring vertical fluting; use in conjunction with optional wire ground stakes to display your message in grassy areas and landscaping. Our yard signs are durable and water-resistant; they can be printed single- or double-sided and cut to shape. Learn More
  • A-Frame Signs – Available with either a non-removable graphic (Standard), or removable graphic (Premium), our durable, portable A-Frames can be utilized outdoors as well as indoors. The graphic is UV-printed, and we add a matte lamination for protection. Learn More
  • Wall Decals – Custom wall decals with your design direct-printed onto low-tac adhesive opaque vinyl. They can be removed, reused, and repositioned many times without damaging paint or drywall. Cut to shape in an array of sizes, with unlimited color options. Learn More
  • Reflective Aluminum Signs – Visible in day or night, these durable signs comprise an inner polyethylene core sandwiched between two sheets of corrosion-resistant aluminum; the face of the sign features an engineer-grade reflective vinyl overlay. Available in multiple shapes and in sizes up to 48 x 96 inches. Learn More

Benefits of Maximum Occupancy Signs

Maximum Occupancy Signs will alert customers and visitors that you have established new/revised occupancy limits for your facility. When used in conjunction with social-distancing signs and perhaps “social-distancing ambassadors,” you’ll be able to ensure that you are reducing foot traffic and congestion within your operation.

Effective Locations for Maximum Occupancy Signs

Typically, you’ll want to position your Maximum Occupancy Signs in locations that are highly visible to customers and visitors as they enter your establishment. In addition, posting these signs inside the facility will serve to remind people of the importance of social distancing. Here are just a few locations to keep in mind for your operation’s Maximum Occupancy Signs:.

  1. Business Entrance/Vestibule – Use signage at your front-door/entrance(s) to let customers and guests know your company is helping protect them by adhering to state and community occupancy standards. Aluminum, plastic, and acrylic signs are ideal here, either hung or installed in a frame; for vestibules and landscaped areas, consider A-Frames and yard signs.
  2. Store Windows & Storefront – Install an opaque window decal on a store window(s) to provide information about your new occupancy limits. You can also hang signs and place posters on easels in your storefront window display.
  3. Interior Store Walls – Look for highly visible areas on interior store walls for hanging aluminum, plastic, and acrylic signs. If you’re seeking a more attention-grabbing option, consider a wall decal, perhaps placed behind your checkout counter, customer service desk, or reception desk.
  4. Posts & Pillars – These load-bearing structures can serve as the perfect spot for an aluminum or plastic sign (or reflective sign if located outdoors). Wall decals, which are flexible vinyl, are also a great option for rounded pillars.
  5. Parking Lot & Exterior Walls – Reflective aluminum signs will ensure, day or night, that customers are aware of your current occupancy limits. Yard signs placed in adjacent or surrounding landscaped areas can provide supplemental messaging.
  6. Loading Dock/Warehouse Entrance – If your store has a public loading dock or entrance to its warehouse, consider placing an aluminum, plastic, or reflective aluminum sign here.
CDC Resources for Businesses & Employers

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has established a page on cdc.gov specifically to help businesses and employers plan, prepare, and respond to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Its “Interim Guidance” document is regularly updated, and provides tips and information for reducing transmission among employees, maintaining healthy business operations, and maintaining a health work environment. Cleaning and disinfecting recommendations for businesses and their employees are also available on this page.
