ImPressions uniquely combines durable performance and design flexibility in a single-piece ADA sign. That means no attached letters or raised characters to pull or pick at by curious passersby. ImPressions is perfect for high-traffic environments such as schools, hospitals and hotels – withstanding damage from cleaning and excessive handling without compromising fine graphic detail.

ImPressions is manufactured through a process of thermoforming which provides for crisp, clean edges, detailed text, logos and graphics. Combined with integral color and fingerprint-resistant surface texturing, this sturdy technology provides a wide range of design flexibility. The product’s performance lies in its composition — made from Kydex®, an impact and flame-resistant, thermoplastic alloy used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications including aircraft and medical equipment enclosures.
