One of the challenges we faced with design projects before using KeySIGN was the amount of time taken to design when specifying sign plates in accordance with the TSRGD.

Given that we use KeySIGN on all Highways Infrastructure Projects that specify traffic signs, you can imagine the amount of time we used to spend on designing. KeySIGN has saved us so much time because of the automation of the detailed design of sign diagrams.

When integrating KeySIGN into our design process, the support we have received has always been appreciated with full support being given within the same day.

We are very happy with KeySIGN and would recommend to anyone looking for a flexible sign design system from a company who always offer quality support.



KeySIGN is an AutoCAD add-on for creating road signs in a simple to learn design suite. With KeySIGN you can create road sign designs quickly and easily, facilitate the manufacturing process of road signs and create map type layouts for any junction arrangement.
