KeySIGN Eire is an AutoCAD add-on for creating Republic of Ireland road signs in a simple-to-learn design suite.
Using fully compliant transport fonts and symbols, your designs will be automatically drawn to industry standards. The layouts can then be fine tuned to ensure they are both readable and aesthetically pleasing.
KeySIGN Eire is the essential all round, complete design tool for sign design and fabrication.
Destination Gazetteer with Officially Approved Listing
Bilingual destinations and other text can be created from a place name gazetteer, provided by the DoT and officially Irish language approved, and presented in an easy to use dialog. A simple filter approach quickly narrows the search down in just a few clicks.
Many Rules Applied Automatically
Different sign types often have individual layout rules, and these dimensions are applied automatically. Some signs can be built from dialog based entry, the final layout being drawn out completely automatically by KeySIGN. Full design details are shown individually for each completed sign, such as x-height, sign width and height and sign colours.
From Design to Manufacture
KeySIGN Eire provides the means for manufacturers to automate the cutting of sign face material and provides routines for ensuring suitable cut lines are chosen on plank constructions. Detailed information on the sign face design and site installation requirements can quickly be shown to clarify the design intent.
Multiple Sign Assemblies
Complete sign assemblies can be designed, even when the width of one sign depends on another. Sign elements such as route text, arrows and symbols are placed automatically, according to the TSM rules, within the sign border, for example destinations ‘blocks’ ranged right for right turns, and ranged left for left and straight ahead junction exits. This is shown here for a classic sign assembly design for the junction of a National route with a Regional route.
Professional CAD Based Design
Map type signs can be built effortlessly as the Rules in the Traffic Signs Manual are applied automatically. Grade separated junction signs are created by the simple placement of destinations and their associated route around a symbol inserted from two clicks, and roundabout layouts are built individually using a selection from just three commands, many needing only two commands.
Officially Approved Design Software
KeySIGN Eire continues to be used by the DoT and the NRA, and is the software of choice in the preparation of the Working Drawings for signs prescribed in the Traffic Signs Manual. In the KeySIGN UK is used by the DfT for the preparation of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions and Chapters of the UK Traffic Signs Manual. In addition our experience with bilingual signing extends to working closely with the Welsh Assembly Government in the preparation of the sign design rules for bilingual signs.
