LED signs are beneficial both for large corporations and local or small businesses. Unfortunately, despite many of the benefits that come with installing electronic signs, not all areas are allowed to display them. Safety and zoning regulations are just some of the reasons why LED signs are being restricted in specific locations. Indoor LED messages are seldom restricted so most of the limitations are applied only on outdoor LED billboard sign.
If you are a small business owner who lives in an area where LED panels have certain limitations, here are some of the options you could consider.
- Despite the many regulations in LED sign installations, there are a number of cities that allow panels to be displayed, provided that you meet certain criteria or requirements. You may need to file a permit and have them signed by local authorities before you are allowed to install electronic billboards on your establishment. Check if this is a possible option in the city you live in.
- There are certain areas where LED signs are allowed only if they are non-moving and stationary. This means that animated electronic signs are not permitted to be installed in local business establishments. If you live in an area where animated LED signs are not allowed, your best option would be to display stationary information such as business hour signs, promotions, or inspiring messages.
- Visible scrolling LED panels are sometimes restricted in certain localities. If this is the case where you live, you can still use electronic signs by displaying them inside your establishment – as long as they cannot be seen by the outside public. This way, you can still communicate with your audiences whether they are your customers, potential clients, employees, or churchgoers.
- An LED exit sign, displayed just above the door facing the inside is a great way to show appreciation and thanks to your customers. It tells the how much you value their visit and hope that you come back again soon.
Despite the restrictions that some local municipalities place when it comes to LED boards, there are still ways you could go around these policies without actually violating the regulations in place. With LED electronic signs, small businesses can easily see an increase in sales while other local establishments can benefit from increase in visitors and potential patrons.
