What are Aluminium signs?
Aluminium signs are made from 0.3mm aluminium sheets which are sandwiched around a polyethylene core. They may be light in weight but are one of the strongest signage options on the market and can withstand the Great British weather.
What are the benefits of using Aluminium signs?
Their rigid, composite nature means they can withstand almost anything. The polyethylene centre makes for a thick and sturdy sign, without the immense weight that pure aluminium signs would create. They’re quick, simple and easy to hang too, meaning that no matter what you’re advertising or trying to say to your potential clients, they’ll be able to see your messaging in no time.
Are Aluminium signs suitable for indoor and outdoor use?
The majority of our customers purchase their Aluminium signs for outdoor use, however they are also great for indoors too. Aluminium is the perfect solution for your outdoor signage, especially if you are wanting it to stand the test of time. Due to its ability to resist whatever the elements can throw at it, Aluminium signs are best suited outdoors as they will maintain their shape and integrity, even as the weather changes.
How do I hang an Aluminium sign?
There are multiple ways that you can hang your Aluminium sign, each of which depend on where you’re wanting to have them on show and the kind of look you’re going for.
All of our Aluminium signs come pre-drilled, meaning the holes are all ready for you when your product arrives. Perhaps you’re short on time and just want to drill your sign straight into the wall you’re positioning it onto? We would recommend ensuring you have the correct wall plugs or screws before you begin.
If you’re hanging your Aluminium sign in an office or other professional environment, you may want to consider using standoffs to create a chic and sophisticated look. A standoff is a separator, which allows the sign to sit away from the wall. They are made up of a wall screw, barrel and a cap and are usually made from materials such as brass or aluminium. Essentially if you want your Aluminium sign to really pop out, a standoff will literally do just that.
How long will an Aluminium sign last?
Aluminium signs are one of the strongest and long-lasting signage options on the market currently, even when exposed to harsh weather conditions. They are highly resistant to decay and fading; if used indoors, your aluminium composite sign should last you up to 10 years or more. If used externally, they will last you up to around five years.
Your Aluminium signs don’t require much upkeep, but we would recommend cleaning them regularly (especially if they are outside) so they look their best.
