Metal Signs


We extensively use metal in the production of premium grade signs because of its durability and versatility. Metal signs can be cast in any shape or size with a wide variety of metallic or painted finishes. We expect our metal signs to stand the test of time and add gravitas and authority to your business.

For example, 3D metal letters are very effective in creating eye catching and impactful reception signs. Brushed stainless steel, on the other hand, is the perfect base for small informative or navigational signs. Metal signs can be illuminated using LED or ambient light sources to create additional reflective qualities or to add an unmissable outer glow to your creations.

Metal Signs For Offices

Metal signs are an everyday part of office life. An effective metal sign in an office environment seamlessly falls into the background but serves its useful purpose when required. It should look in keeping with the organisations overall brand and be internally consistent with other metal signs within the same office. We make directory, companies boards, lift/elevator, WC, room number, building number, health and safety, directional and all other types of metal office sign.
