Innovation Helping to Improve Tourist Signage in the Municipality of Les Baronnies ! (France)

A true LACROIX City innovation, the SLx4 is the only LIS range that allows message boards to be replaced in one click. The customer thought that the invisible fastenings used on the signs gave them a very aesthetically pleasing finish. As such, this is helping enhance the appeal of the region and the community of municipalities, making it much easier for tourists to identify them.

The municipality of les Baronnies, located in the heart of the Drôme Provençale, is a region that lives from tourism, so it wanted to mark out the tourist attractions to help visitors find their way around more easily, both those visiting town and city centres and those travelling outside urban areas.

LACROIX City therefore proposed a combination of different SLx4 units:

  • Two-post system with tangential fastening boards on ÉTOILE® posts lacquered in different shades depending on their placement.
  • Single-post system with off-centre front-mounted boards on ÉTOILE® posts.
  • Use of LIS (Local Information Signage) regional graphic charter for background colours.

The management of visitor flows extends right down to the smallest villages, which are now equipped with a range of Local Information Signage.
