Our Relationship with Seagate Development Group

Posted on Tuesday, August 25, 2020

Over the years, we have done many projects with Seagate Development Group. Our salesman, Jim Geiger, has been working with them on development signs and mailboxes for their many communities and buildings. One of the most recent being for Conditioned Air’s new warehouse. We were even able to refurbish one of the signs from their previous warehouse to look brand new on this building and our company is working on a 30’ flagpole, as well.

This business relationship has allowed for us to take on Seagate Development Groups brand new Corporate Headquarters. We completed the channel letters on the building, as well as the monument sign and flag pole out front. We look forward to working with this company for many years to come and appreciate the business. So, from everyone at Lykins-Signtek, we say thank you!

Check Your Pool Rules!

Posted on Friday, August 21, 2020

Everyone is familiar with the signs that must be positioned around a public pool to alert swimmers of the potential dangers, but are you sure that your community’s pool has all their bases covered? In Florida there are 8 regulations you must have plus the certain guidelines that are specific to your pool.

  • A sign with the following pool rules and regulations (printed in at least 1 inch letters):
  •  -No food or beverages in pool or on pool deck
  • -No glass or animals in the pool area
  • -Bathing load: ___ persons
  • -Pool hours: __ a.m. to __ p.m.
  • -Shower before entering
  • -Do not swallow the pool water, it is recirculated
  • -Do not use pool if you are ill with diarrhea
  • -“NO DIVING” in 4 inch letters (for pools larger than 200 square feet).
  • A sign with site-specific safety guidelines. These guidelines depend on the hazards unique to each pool. If any of these dangers exist, pool user must be appropriately notified.
  • -Danger: Steep slope
  • – Designated diving areas
  • – Deep water
  • -Underwater obstruction
  • – Dangerous wildlife
  • Restroom Directions. If restrooms are not visible from the pool deck, directions must be posted in at least 1 inch letters and positioned so that they can be read from any point on pool deck.

Pools that are longer than 300 feet may also be required to obtain additional signage after consulting with the Florida Department of Health. We reiterate that pool owners should corroborate the accuracy of these guidelines by checking relevant state, county, and local statutes.
