Methods and Materials

One of the most important criteria for our signage is that it should give long term use, even when sited in a particularly exposed or vandal-prone location.  We have produced signs for places as diverse as Orkney and Ascension Island as well as numerous inner city sites, so they have been well tested over the years.

The ElementsOur printing methods are specifically designed for long term outdoor use and give top quality graphic reproduction
with an life expectancy of between 5 and 10 years without fading.

Most of our graphics are produced in high impact acrylic, a material we have used for many years and which has proved itself time and time again in the most testing of conditions.  Besides standing up to almost anything the elements can throw at it, it also has excellent resistance to most forms of vandalism.

Vandal Resistant

Where vandalism is perceived to be a serious problem, our steel mounts tend to be the preferred option.  These are robustly built with a tough powder-coated finish and the facility to replace panels relatively easily should any damage take place.

Our timber structures are perhaps not quite so resistant to deliberate damage but are nonetheless strongly made and can be expected to give long life in most locations.  The timber types we use most commonly are oak, Douglas fir and pressure-treated softwood.

The photographs of signs on this page were all taken after the installations had been on site for at least ten years.
