MetroVanes introduced wayfinders that enable buyers to go online to custom design directional signs for residential gardens, patios, decks and lawns, each providing accurate compass points and aerial distances in mileage or kilometers to favorite destinations anywhere in the world.

Mounted on six or eight-foot galvanized or powder-coated steel posts bolted to decks or set in the ground, personalized 24-inch-by-5-inch MetroVane wayfinders pinpoint directions, distances, cities and countries. Selections often include vacation venues, golf courses, stadiums and arenas. Each post can hold up to eight of the 3mm aluminum-composite signs.

Locations are computed by latitude, longitude and elevation coordinates tethered directly to specific home addresses, giving each installation its own unique datasets while providing a decorative accent for outdoor living spaces

Wayfinder arrows spiral outward to selected destinations printed in uppercase black font on white backgrounds on both sides of the signs. City and country names are lowercase, and state and provincial flags and birds, company logos and other icons can be added.

“Buyers can designate any point on the planet, thousands of miles away or within their zip codes,” said Tom Glenn, owner of MetroVanes. “Destinations are computed by latitude, longitude and elevation coordinates tethered directly to specific home addresses, giving each installation its own unique datasets while providing a decorative accent for outdoor living spaces.”

MetroVane wayfinders will also be marketed to golf courses, college and office campuses, amusement parks, shopping centers, walking tours, parks and other public spaces. Distances can be expressed in feet or yardage for commercial uses or to indicate short walks to other parts of homeowner properties.

Standard MetroVane kits include the steel post, dome cap, bolting plate and three personally designed and printed signs for a cost of $250 plus shipping. Options include finials adorning peaks of the posts and decorative bases. Individual wayfinder signs also are available.
