Pylon

DHL pylons are the preferred choice for entrances to sites and buildings. If possible, design them as luminous LED signs. Information about the location is placed as text on the pylon. Pylons are also well suited as signposts with directional arrows (e.g. pointing to a ServicePoint). Design the text layout based on the general signage guidelines.

For details on the design, construction and the foundations of pylons, please see the technical specifications, which are available at:  https://www.corporate-design-services-dp-dhl.de/
