How do I Measure an Awning Sign?

DISPLAY AREA:

The display area of a sign shall be measured as the area, in square feet, of the smallest rectilinear polygon, with a maximum of 8 sides that describes the portion of the sign which encloses all lettering, wording design, or symbols together with any internally-illuminated or externally-illuminated background that is designed as an integral part of the sign. The following rules shall also be used in measuring display area:

a) Where a sign has multiple display surfaces and any 2 of these display surfaces are parallel and face in opposite directions, only one of the parallel display surfaces shall be included when calculating display area.

b) For an internally-illuminated awning sign, the display area shall be calculated as the height of the awning multiplied by its width.

c) The area of temporary signs shall not be included in computation of allowable area for permanent signage. Only one of the parallel display surfaces shall be included when calculating display area.
