Traditional painted signage - ladder signs, framed signs, sign boards.

Painted Signage

After years of vinyl signage dominating the market, traditional painted wooden signs are making a come-back.They do however have advantages over the old painted signs. The modern paint is a very hard wearing polyurethane paint which is mixed with a hardener before spraying.

Fibreglass (GRP) signs are light yet strong.

Fibreglass Signs
Fibreglass (GRP) have massive advantage over other sign systems. Although comparatively light, they are extremely strong and therefore resistant to vandalism and weathering. The ability of fibreglass to be molded offers shapes and sizes which could be cost prohibitive in other mediums, i.e. wood and metal. They are available in sixteen standard colours but with our SM range all RAL colours are available.

They are available as flat plate, with fixing channels and posts, tray signs, lecterns and interpretation panels. Reflective and photoluminescent signs also available.

Lots of ideas for farm and estate signage.

Farm and Estate Signs
We have a whole range of farm and estate signs. The oak signs are a speciality but we do make signage in lots of other materials.

Oak framed aluminium composite are also great looking signs. For very long life signage, stone should be considered.
