**************************************************************************

NOTE: This guide specification covers the requirements for common types of signs, dimensional letters, and metal plaques used inside buildings.

Adhere to UFC 1-300-02 Unified Facilities Guide

Specifications (UFGS) Format Standard when editing this guide specification or preparing new project specification sections. Edit this guide specification for project specific requirements by adding, deleting, or revising text. For bracketed items, choose applicable items(s) or insert appropriate information.

Remove information and requirements not required in respective project, whether or not brackets are present.

Comments, suggestions and recommended changes for this guide specification are welcome and should be

submitted as a Criteria Change Request (CCR).

**************************************************************************

PART 1 GENERAL

**************************************************************************

NOTE: This section covers some of the more common interior sign types. When other sign types are to be used, such as elevator-related signs, occupancy load signs and structural load limit signs, specifications will be modified accordingly.

Buildings will be accessible in accordance with 36

CFR, Part 1191, Americans with Disabilities Act

(ADA) Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and

Facilities except for Army buildings excluded by TI

800-01 Design Criteria.

Reference UFC 3-120-01 available at

SECTION 10 14 00.20 Page 3

design, construction and placement of signs. Defer to the most current version of ADA for Chapter 3 and throughout the UFC because the UFC has not been updated to include the most recent ADA revisions.

In combination with this specification, drawings and attachments will include location, dimensions, elevations, schedules, content, details and such other information as required to indicate the extent of the work. The same terminology and designations used in the specification will be used on the drawings, schedules and attachments.

Product selections shall be based on quality, aesthetic values, appearance, and cost as related to project needs.

Use of personal names on interior signage is discouraged. If personal names are required, changeable message strips will be used. Consider coordination of interior signage within this specification with signage required on individual workstations which is specified in Section 12 59 00

SYSTEMS FURNITURE.

Interior stairwell signage will be provided in accordance with Life Safety Code NFPA 101, Chapter

5, and applicable occupancy chapters. Clearly define interstitial spaces or other doorways within stairwell that do not lead to a horizontal exitway with signage that states "Not an Exit".

Permanent information on room identification signs includes the room number on all room identification signs, symbol and message on toilet rooms, message on janitor closets, mechanical/electrical and communications rooms, and message on stairs.

Where appropriate for MEDICAL FACILITIES, include the following requirements for signage:

1. Room numbering for spaces within the medical facility will be determined jointly by the using facility and the design team. User room number will be different than architectural room number (see UFC

4-510-01 Design: Medical Military Facilities).

Room numbering will be consistent throughout the facility. For inpatient medical facilities, rooms with audiovisual nurse call shall have a unique user room number, since audiovisual nurse call is tied into a digital paging system. For outpatient clinics, rooms with tonevisual nurse call, do not need a unique user room number, since tonevisual nurse call is hardwired to a panel located at a nursing station. Room numbering should address the following issues:

a. Wayfinding within clinics and other departments (user room #).

SECTION 10 14 00.20 Page 4

b. Facility Maintenance (architectural room #).

c. Audiovisual Nurse Call (inpatient) (unique user room #).

d. Tonevisual Nurse Call (outpatient) (user room #).

2. The use of symbols/graphics on interior signage will be limited. International symbols and graphics will be used where needed. Recommended symbols include men/women symbol for toilet rooms and showers, men/women symbol with key for locker rooms, telephone symbol for public telephone areas, information (?), radiation symbol, biohazard symbol, and handicap symbol.

3. Arrow placement order on interior signage will comply with UFC 4-510-01 Design: Medical Military

Facilities. Left pointing arrows at top of sign, followed by up pointing arrows, then right pointing arrows at bottom of sign. Example follows:

< EMERGENCY

^ Orthopedic Clinic

> Admissions

4. Signage schedule should be provided in electronic spreadsheet format. Schedule will include architectural room number, user room number, type of sign, message, symbol (if needed), color, and mounting location.

5. Building directories and accompanying orientation maps for the medical facility will be determined jointly by the using facility and the design team. Orientation maps, if required, will be included as part of the interior signage package, and should be of the same manufacturer. Include international symbols for information (?), parking areas (upper case P within circle), public toilet rooms, public telephones, and graphic north arrow on orientation maps. Orientation map is to be positioned so that building left is viewer's left.

6. Large, easy to read signs over reception counters, check-in counters, information desks, or departments will be provided. Signs should be either ceiling mounted or affixed to soffit directly above counters.

7. Room identification signs should be 200 mm x 200 mm 8 x 8 inch or 230 mm x 230 mm 9 x 9 inch.

Justification of room number and message will be flush left.

8. Fire evacuation signs will be provided in accordance with the local Fire Marshal, if required.

**************************************************************************

NOTE: The following bracketed items are representative of LEED material documentation and requirements that may apply to this project. These items should be edited to reflect the project requirements.

**************************************************************************

SECTION 10 14 00.20 Page 7

Materials in this technical specification may contribute towards contract compliance with sustainability requirements. See Section 01 33 29

SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING for project certification [local/regional materials,] [recycled content,] [low emitting materials,] [optimize energy performance,] [_____,] [rapidly renewable materials] and documentation requirements.

1.3 SUBMITTALS

**************************************************************************

NOTE: Review submittal description (SD) definitions in Section 01 33 00 SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES and edit the following list to reflect only the submittals required for the project.

The Guide Specification technical editors have designated those items that require Government approval, due to their complexity or criticality, with a "G." Generally, other submittal items can be reviewed by the Contractor's Quality Control

System. Only add a “G” to an item, if the submittal is sufficiently important or complex in context of the project.

For submittals requiring Government approval on Army projects, a code of up to three characters within the submittal tags may be used following the "G" designation to indicate the approving authority.

Codes for Army projects using the Resident

Management System (RMS) are: "AE" for

Architect-Engineer; "DO" for District Office

(Engineering Division or other organization in the

District Office); "AO" for Area Office; "RO" for

Resident Office; and "PO" for Project Office. Codes following the "G" typically are not used for Navy,

Air Force, and NASA projects.

An "S" following a submittal item indicates that the submittal is required for the Sustainability

Notebook to fulfill federally mandated sustainable requirements in accordance with Section 01 33 29

SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING.

Choose the first bracketed item for Navy, Air Force and NASA projects, or choose the second bracketed item for Army projects.

**************************************************************************

Government approval is required for submittals with a "G" designation; submittals not having a "G" designation are for [Contractor Quality Control approval.] [information only. When used, a designation following the "G" designation identifies the office that will review the submittal for the

Government.] Submittals with an "S" are for inclusion in the

Sustainability Notebook, in conformance to Section 01 33 29 SUSTAINABILITY

REPORTING. Submit the following in accordance with Section 01 33 00
