high-end wall-mounted signage made of polish aluminum and tempered glass | pile-ou-face© marcal

Pile-ou-face© marcal is a range of interior signage products for all types of buildings that need an organization of circulation flows: buildings for public use, administrative services, offices, health, culture, etc...

The concept of the range is articulated around aluminum profiles with its 8mm thick tempered glass front face and its only aluminum counterpart. These glass signage plates are referred to as "PIL" where tempered glass slides sideways to make information content accessible to the user.. Aluminum front face signage mounts are referenced as "FACE" and offer a permanent content surface. The assembly and the perfect connection between both types of profile «PILE» and «FACE» allow to create composite typologies adapted to the information to be communicated: structural part and functional part.

The finishes of the aluminum profiles are micro-sandblasted natural anodized or polished aluminum. The Pile-ou-face© marcal signage range is made up of numerous formats, with two heights of aluminum profile to handle a wide variety of signage projects. The finishes of the aluminum profiles are micro-sandblasted natural anodized or polished aluminum. The type 100 profile (references «PIL» and «FACE») have a height of 70mm and solve the types of door plates, pictograms, rooms plates, offices and toilets. The type 200 profile (references «PIL» and «FACE») have a height of 210mm and fulfill the functions of directional signpost, elavator and stairs directory, and hall directory.
Freestanding typologies, display signs, desk sign, toilets pictogram, stair pictogram and elevator pictogram complete the Pile-ou-face© marcal range.

The graphic design that personalizes the signage results in numerous types of marking applications: printing on polyester film, digital printing, silk-screen printing, CAD vinyl cutting, mechanical or laser engraving.
Pile-ou-face© marcal signage products are compatible with the full access© marcal system for tactile signs with raised pictograms and Braille writing, to meet the accessibility needs of signage projects.
