Sliding signs work manually. These SmartSliders™ consist of two panels - a static panel with two different messages on either side and a moveable top panel. You can easily show one message out of the two to show the current room status. To change the message on the sign, just slide the top panel horizontally and show either the message at the right or the left.
For example - Before using the bathroom, the user can display “Occupied” on the Occupied and Vacant Sign by covering the other side with the top slider. After coming out, the person can manually slide the top panel covering “Occupied” and displaying “Vacant” for other users.
Depending on your surface and other preferences, you can choose from -
Foam Adhesive Strips: All Sliding Door Signs include high-bond foam adhesive strips for quick, permanent, and firm installation. These double-sided foam strips work well on clean and dry surfaces. If the surface is dirty or porous, the bond will not work well.
Hook and Loop fastener strips (Velcro): 0.75-inch x 1-inch velcro strips are a clean option for those looking to change the position of their slider sign after installation. If rooms change regularly, you can easily take off the sign from the door and relocate it to a new location without any mess.
Magnetic strips: 0.75-inch x 1-inch magnetic strips are a great option if the signs need to be relocated or replaced. However, the bond is not as strong, and therefore, magnetic strips are recommended for static surfaces and not for moving surfaces like doors.
Sliding Signs consist of a 60 mil thick engraved plastic plate recessed within a solid anodized aluminum frame. The frame is available in a few colors and finishes. The plastic plate has two panels. The top sliding panel has engraved text, while the static base plate is screen-printed and/or coated in vivid color. Installation is simple too - use the foam adhesive strip to mount the sign on a door. Or, you can opt for magnetic or Velcro strips. Signs are easy to maintain, incredibly durable, and last for years and years.
If you’re looking for a smaller size, try our Custom Mini Slider Sign. The height of this mini sign is 2.25 inches - the same as other SmartSliders™ Signs. However, the width is only 4 inches while other pre-printed Vacant Occupied Door Signs are 10 inches wide. This mini version will not take up much space and fit well on lockers, drawers, windows, and other very narrow surfaces. View this excellent video that details this Mini Slider Sign.

Our slider signs are popularly called ‘two signs in one.’ With the help of just one slide, you can change the message on the sign. A double-sided door tag would also help you change the message by turning the tag and displaying only the current room status. However, door tags are lightweight and may not be as stable as fixed signs. An Occupied Vacant Slider Sign stays in place once installed on the door surface and looks much more professional than a tag. Also, door signs cannot be stolen or taken off by anyone, unlike door tags which can be easily removed.
