Solution / Description

Exterior large Format Signs

Simple and accurate face tensioning; trouble-free maintenance - these are the hallmarks of Flexcase As the only sign box system designed to fulfil all the unique demands of flexible face materials, Flexcase has been designed in close collaboration with lighting specialists and substrate manufacturers. The system has been tested and approved by 3M for use with Panaflex face material.

The great inherent strength and rigidity of the Flexcase box allows the signmaker virtually unlimited design freedom to produce high quality signs of seamless and frameless appearance in a wide variety of sizes.

Directional Signs

These signs are cast in aluminium in ball or pagoda styles. They are painted in the client's choice of RAL colours. Bespoke finials incorporating town crest or corporate logo, cast with all detail in relief and painted full colours using quality paints.
